Martin Kiiza, the general secretary for Uganda National Council For Children told Chimpreports that many children do not know their rights and responsibilities and that is why they are being abused.
“Children should be taught right away from schools about their rights and teachers should spare time and host some members from Human Rights organisations to talk to children about their rights and responsibilities,” Kiiza noted.
He added: “as National Council For Children in Uganda, we have started a campaign where we will visit certain schools teaching children their rights.”
He pointed out some schools that are already covered including St. Jude primary school and Kitante primary school and promised to extend this campaign to rural areas next term.
However, he argued that although children have their rights that need to be protected, they should also know their responsibilities like learning and getting proper grades and helping parents with domestic work instead of sitting back because they are children.
