When & Where
Africans Unite Against Child Abuse (AFRUCA)
Africans Unite against Child Abuse (AFRUCA) was established in May 2001 as a platform for advocating for the rights and welfare of African children. The main focus of our work is Prevention and Early Intervention. The 1989 UN Convention on the Rights of The Child and the UK Children’s Acts of 1989 and 2004 provide the foundation for all our work at AFRUCA. We aim to promote the best interests of the child in all our activities. Our stance is that culture and religion should never be a reason to abuse children. We work in five key areas including Awareness Raising and Sensitisation, provision of Education, Information and Advisory Services, Advocacy and Policy Development, Community and International Development as well as Direct Support for Children, Young People and Families.
