Three organizations in Mathare Constituency have launched an initiative to prevent violence against children.

The three organizations Oasis Mathare, DIME Youth Camps and Wanawake Mashinani Initiative also seek to tackle poverty, illicit brew and even create safe spaces for children.

Douglas Mwangi of Oasis Mathare says that they are planning to work in three wards in Mathare Constituency namely, Ngei Ward, Mabatini Ward and Mlango Kubwa Ward.

“We are planning to incorporate technology to come up with interventions for these issues that these children are facing

“We will be working with schools and form school clubs. These schools will be able to train the kids how to detect violence and to even know what’s violence,” said Mwangi.

Mwangi says that the school clubs will give the children safe spaces to open up and talk about their plights.

Beatrice Karore of Wanawake Mashinani says that they are seeking to be preventive and not reactive of the issues that children face.

“Many are time when we have swung into action after a child has been defiled or even abused. In as much as we will help these kids, the trauma is already caused,” says Karore.

She is hoping to that stakeholders namely the chiefs, police and activists can work together to make the programme a success.
