In CBS-ECE Kenya, we define a “Child” as a human being below the age of 18 years. At this stage, a child needs protection from abuse and bad treatment, negative social and cultural practices and all forms of exploitation and child abuse. We aim to prevent the use of children as beggars on the streets of our cities, as fighters among the nomads’ communities and as wives in early age marriages.
We acknowledge that children are entitled to enjoyment of freedom of; expression, association, peaceful assembly, thought, religion, and conscience. We seek to protect the private life of the child and safeguard him/her against all forms of economic exploitation and hazardous work by taking them to school. Such things interfere with child’s education; and can compromise his/her health or physical, social, mental, spiritual and moral development. We also enhance the protection of children with disabilities and internally displaced children.
Thousands of children in Kenya need help to break the seemingly never-ending cycle of poverty, hunger weakens them, unsafe drinking water makes them sick, and missing out on education keeps them from reaching their full potential.
Late South African President Nelson Mandela once said “ To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity…Without education, your children can never really overcome the challenges they will face. So it’s very important to give children education and explain that they should play a role for their country”.
In regard to the above, we wish to seek financial support, working relation, collaboration, cooperation and partnership in implementing that every child in Kenya and beyond reach their vision and build a stronger future generation for the global development sustainability. We seek to provide a child with sustainable access to appropriate life changing basic needs like education, nutrition, clean water, quality healthcare and security. Work with us for the best interest of the child.
