Our work in action

– Owing to the increasing number of child abuse cases experienced in the country, UCRNN initiated the CSO led child helpline in 2006 as a reporting and response mechanism. In a bid to strengthen this service, UCRNN in 2013, lobbied government and the private sector through the public private partnership to support the Child Helpline and a short code 116 for reporting child abuse.
