The Corporate Strategy of Childline Kenya, 2019-2022, is grounded on our vision of upholding the rights and dignity of children. This will be achieved through ICT innovations. Our work is carried out within a set of values that underpin our daily decisions.
Violence against children is any action or words that cause harm, injury or sadness to children. It can be physical, sexual or emotional abuse and neglect. It happens in homes, schools and communities across Kenya, no matter the tribe, religion, or upbringing. Adults, young people, or even other children can cause violence. Below is a list of the different kinds of violence, and a picture of what children and young people in Kenya have experienced.
This policy paper was compiled and published by Childline Kenya, a non-governmental organization (NGO) registered in Kenya under the NGO Coordination Act in 2005. Childline Kenya works by implementing innovative communication and technology-driven programmes. Our core service is the National Child Helpline 116, Kenya's only 24-hour, toll-free telephone and web-based helpline for children. It is operated by Childline Kenya on behalf of the Kenya Government's Department of Children's Services
The National Helpline 116 is a confidential reporting platform that is accessible to children and adults who have identified or witnessed violence against children and feel the need to report anonymously. It is also used as a means to get information on child related issues and also access to counseling services.
