CREAW and the International Day of Prayer and Action for Children

Soweto village in Kibera, Nairobi, is a region beset by poverty and malnutrition. On Saturday 23 Nov CREAW will facilitate discussions on gender based violence during activities with Arigatou International and Chemichemi Ya Uzima Clinic. At this event at Soweto Baptists Primary School, parents will hear about positive parenting and birth registration, while their children will receive medical treatments. We welcome Fred Nyabera, who directs the Inter-Faith Initiative to End Child Poverty.

Established in 2008, the World Day of Prayer and Action for Children is celebrated by bringing together secular and faith-based organisations to work to end violence against children. Universal Children’s Day, established by the United Nations in 1954, also commemorates the 1989 adoption of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. The World Day is a day of reflection and a call to action for the well-being of children around the world.
