Using technology for child protection in Kenya

/echo/file/using-technology-child-protection-kenya_frUsing technology for child protection in Kenya

With the help of EU humanitarian funds, UNICEF, in partnership with Lutheran World Federation (LWF), uses a Child Protection Information Management System – CPIMS+, to capture and manage cases of children at risk in Kakuma Refugee Camp and Kalobeyei Settlement in Kenya. Through the efficiency afforded by the system, Sarah Mzee was rescued from child marriage and her family provided with a safe place to live away from the perpetrators. In this video, she tells her story.

The video also highlights “children in a digital world”, a focus of UNICEF’s latest flagship report, the State of the World’s Children 2017. Whilst most children in Africa are not online, UNICEF is using digital technologies to positively influence them in other ways.
