No child should be detained: Uganda 20 November 2014

IDC members in Africa got behind the International Day of Action to End Child Detention on November 20, held on the 25th anniversary of the Convention of the Rights of the Child.  Activities were run in South AfricaKenya (initiated by RMMS) and Uganda.

In Uganda, the Refugee Law Project launched a sensitisation campaign to raise community awareness of the incidence of child immigration detention, and resulting harm to children and families. Individuals were encouraged to sign the ongoing global petition to end child detention, and children in the community recorded messages of support for children in detention, resulting in this fantastic public video.


Next year IDC members plan to raise concerns about the detention of children with the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights.  If you are interested in getting involved, please email the IDC Africa Regional Coordinator.
