CISP Welcomes the Ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child PDF Print

Since 1980, CISP has worked with communities in Somalia to increase access to basic services such as health care, education and livelihood opportunities.
During this time, the people of Somalia have endured difficulties emanating from political conflict and famine.  Despite the situation, communities have demonstrated resolve in providing for their members. CISP has continued with the commitment to support these communities by setting up systems to facilitate this.

Over the last few years, the country has made many positive steps; ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child on 20 January 2015 is one of them. CISP welcomes this remarkable development which will give the children of Somalia legal rights and guide key policies relating to their protection, education and health care.

CISP expects better outcomes for children of Somalia: An increase in school enrolment, completion and better results on learning; improved health and nutrition status; as well as reduced cases of grave violations against children including recruitment into armed groups, separation from care givers and child labour.

As CISP, we will continue with our effort to support communities in Somalia realize fundamental rights and equal opportunities for all.
