Culture is an integral part of a community and lays the basis on which children are brought up. However, there are retrogressive cultures that prove to be harmful to the growth and development of children in the society. Such cultures include; Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) early/forced marriages and other cultures that dictate that only a certain gender of children should be educated. Other than the retrogressive cultural practices, children are faced with other forms of child abuse which include; child labor, drug and substance abuse, sexual abuse, child trafficking/ commercial sexual exploitation of children, child neglect, institutional abuse among others.
N.C.I.I works are all geared towards the best interest of the child and it is in this reason that we are actively involved in advocating for the rights of the children through Children Rights Clubs in schools and participating in activities that advocate for children rights and protection.
