African Committee of Experts on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (ACERWC) Secretariat

Share:

The African Committee of Experts on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (ACERWC) was established in 2001, drawing its mandate from Articles 32-46 of the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child. The main goal of the Secretariat is to work towards making Africa a continent that is fit for children by protecting and respecting their rights. The committee’s main functions are to collect information, interpret provisions of the Charter, monitor the implementation of the Charter, give recommendations to governments for working with child rights organisations, consider individual complaints about violations of children’s rights, and investigate measures adopted by Member States to implement the Charter.
