Justice for child victims
- Organization: Defence for Children International Liberia (DCI Liberia)
- Project: Child Rights Advocacy
- Country: Liberia
- Goal: Strengthen the justice system by training duty bearers to fortify their role for providing justice for child victims of violence, to raise awareness and to assist children in reporting cases of violence.
The right to be protected against all forms of violence is one of the fundamental rights of the child. The implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is still an issue of concern in Liberia. The justice system of Liberia is weak and mostly focused on adults. Together with our local partner DCI Liberia we would like to improve justice for children in Liberia.
Justice for child victims of violence
In cooperation with local organization DCI-Liberia KidsRights will strengthen the justice system in Liberia for child victims of violence. Duty bearers within the justice system will receive training to fortify their roles for providing justice for children who have become victims of violence. Furthermore, children who want to report violent crimes will receive guidance within the justice system.
Our project partner DCI Liberia
DCI-Liberia was established in 2009 as a children’s rights organization in order to defend and promote children’s rights and to urge the government of Liberia to adhere to the regional and international commitments and promises they made that involve the rights of the child. DCI-Liberia’s goal is to promote an environment in which children’s rights, participation and the protection of children are paramount and in which all children have access to the justice system.
