Currently we have the following programs running:
Kids Safe Project - Child Protection Policy
This addresses issues such as:
- Types of child abuse
- Myths surrounding child abuse
- Development of child protection policies
- How to prevent and report child abuse
Results from our training show a better understanding of child rights and improved attitudes by the trainees on what their responsibilities as community leaders are in ensuring the rights of children in the community.

The project provides training, resources, funding, networking and mentoring of grassroots leaders in Africa.
