CRO works with the children, the communities, the local government and other development organizations to improve the wellbeing of the children.
Members of the community are trained in child rights, participation and protection. The community child protection committees work hard to identify and report cases of child abuse to relevant authorities.
We engage the teachers, police and local leaders to enhance their knowledge and skills in protecting children.
This year in October, CRO hosted local leaders from the Mbale and its neighboring districts in Eastern Uganda to discuss on the increasing numbers of children and young people on the streets.
The meeting took place at CRO Mbale Center where leaders met the children rescued by CRO, those under rehabilitation as well as those who are still residing on the streets.
Leaders were tasked to help in sensitizing their communities on how they can help their children especially those who have been re-integrated into their communities as well as on formulating ways of improving people’s livelihoods.
Parenting education is also provided to the parents and other care givers to promote non violent relationships, and non violent forms of discipline with their children. This has helps the community to understand their role in protecting children
