The secretary-general of The Gambia Red Cross Society has underscored the need for government to assist the society for it to be able to fulfill it mandates as a humanitarian society.
If we must progress, we cannot afford to neglect their authentic voices particularly the Girl child, who is often left behind. From enacting laws to shaping cultural norms, we have a binding responsibility to seek and treasure the input of the African Child.
One way that we can build a better future for children is by empowering them to speak up for themselves. Of course, we as adults have to guide them and take ultimate responsibility but Why should the mantle of responsibility given to us be misused and abused?
The rights of children must, importantly, include the right to be themselves and to talk for themselves. The Voice of the African child must not be neglected. Their rights must be regarded and seen as human rights.
We owe it to our children to End all forms of Injustices and Violations against their Rights by Creating a System that gives ACCESS TO CHILD-FRIENDLY JUSTICE IN AFRICA.
