A nation can only be as rich as its investment in child protection and welfare programs. Therefore a child rights centred approach to human development is crucial for sustained economic development of any country. In the spirit of Ubuntu, effective child protection demands that there are no territorial borders, because your child is only as safe as your neighbour’s child.
AICS promotes a rights based approach, believing that the first ring of protection is an empowered child. The persons and institutions with duty to protect a child must be capacity built through public financing.
Over the years, we have guided stakeholders to priority areas of interventions including child sexual exploitation, organized crime and violent extremism, child trafficking, child labour, neglect.
