Law Enforcers Urged to Give Child Rights a Priority
In a bid to enhance child rights and protection, the Mully Children’s Family (MCF) recently sponsored a workshop for the law enforcers to encourage them to take the lead in promoting access to justice for the children.
The two-day event that was held at Kithimani in Yatta Sub-county was facilitated by the Legal Resource Foundation Trust. It brought together about 40 attendants who included the regular police, administration police, chiefs, sub-chiefs, community based organizations and village elders.
In his address to the attendees, the MCF Founder and CEO Dr. Charles Mulli enumerated the importance of protecting children rights in the society.
He said: “If the law enforcers are well equipped with vital information, then they serve the community better. And if the children are well protected, the future of the society will be stable.”
After the workshop, the law enforcers resolved to do their best in guarding children’s rights and increasing their access to justice. They promised to reach out to members of the public – and fellow colleagues – to sensitize them about child rights and protection.
The MCF is a non-profit making, charitable organization that caters for children who are orphaned, abandoned, abused, desperate and neglected.
