Welcome to Justice for Children, an organisation formed in view of the rising levels of poverty which were accompanied by escalating legal fees making it impossible for many to access justice. The HIV and AIDS pandemic also weighed in with the problems of orphanhood, child headed households and denial of children’s rights in cases like inheritance.
