The organisation empowers adults and children on child protection laws and procedures through workshops, awareness campaigns and meetings so that they take appropriate action, including seeking legal redress, where children’s rights are violated. The organisation works with the Government in its empowerment efforts. It has therefore partnered with Police Victim Friendly Unit, Victim Friendly Court, Ministry of Women Affairs, Gender and Community Development and the Department of Social Services in carrying out community awareness activities. The organisation entered into a partnership with the Ministry of Education, Sports, Arts and Culture in 2004 which has now seen Child Law Forum Clubs being formed in Harare, Bindura, Chegutu, Mutasa and Chinhoyi. Children, with the guidance of their teachers, use these clubs to empower themselves on their rights and to participate in issues that affect them. The club members have therefore been instrumental in organizing and participating during international children’s days such as the Day of the African Child.
