The Children's Rights Centre is committed to establishing a sustainable children's rights culture in the context of human rights principles. This culture would entrench the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child not only into the new laws of our land, but into the fabric of society and human relations. We work towards this vision by:

Monitoring the situation of women and children
