Who we are.

Uganda Child Rights NGO Network (UCRNN) is a coalition of over 150 child-focused organizations including community-based, national, and international NGOs working for the welfare and rights of over 3 million vulnerable children in Uganda. Established in 1997 to spearhead the generation of the NGO Alternative report on the progress of implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Network has over the years played a leading role in mobilizing child focused organizations for collective action at national, regional and international level and has been the CSO voice on child rights in Uganda.

Established in 1997 to spearhead the writting of the NGO alternative report to UN committee of experts on the Rights of the Child (CRC), UCRNN has over the years expanded its membership and programs for the benefit of children.

We believe in having all children recognized as individuals with human rights, protecting and defending children’s rights and seeking justice for rights violations, focusing on keeping leaders and governments accountable for their actions towards children, defending children whose rights are violated, protecting the most vulnerable children and making the rights of the child accessible to as many people as possible.
