Mercy Education Office sits in the planning committee of Nairobi County celebrations where government officials and agencies, NGOs, FBOs, CBOs, International organizations such as UNHCR and other stakeholders within the Nairobi Child Protection Team (NCPT) gather to plan and discuss the challenges and opportunities facing the full realization of rights of children. This is in line with United Nations Conventions on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC, 1989), the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of Children (ACRWC, 1990) the Kenya laws on child protection provisions of the Children’s Act 2010 and the National Children Policy (2010) all of which are based on the key pillars of Survival Rights, Development Rights, Protection Rights and Participation Rights. This year’s DAC theme was “Leave no child behind for Africa’s development.” 1,500 children from various schools attended the event which was at the New Kihumbuini Primary School Kangemi on 16th June 2018.
