Results: Qualitative – Quotes, stories and Pictures • A total of 289 community legal volunteers (CLVs) were trained to provide first-aid legal aid • We worked with 351 schools to become childfriendly. They have since reduced to 200 • Percentage of children with birth cards increased from 29% to 69%.
Working with CLVs I have been working with SCORE project for the last 5 years in championing the assurance of child rights, addressing domestic violence issues, helping parents make their wills, and documenting their properties. We have seen many parents reconcile with their children, and even with their neighbors, children are now aware of their rights and everyone knows their roles and responsibilities. Faith Mbabazi, CLV- Mutata Mitooma District
CLV’s Work Anena Grace, CLV Anaka Town Council- Nwoya District I received training in rights of the children, child protection through the SCORE project legal training, I am now aware of the inheritance issues and issues regarding cultural constraints against inheritance, women status and child rights in the communities. I also learnt that children are fragile and prone to make mistakes conflicting with the law but they need to be handled with care and highest degree of confidentiality.
Non-formal CP Structures Nyakatunga Mothers’ Union Group. Katanda- Rubirizi District When we started training in child protection issues, our families became more stable and free from any cases of domestic violence and child labor. We now share the family properties equally and our names as women are included in the land agreements. We look after our husbands with respect and share our parental responsibilities equally
Child-Friendly schools Teacher Guston, Kyeihara P. SSheema District Before the project, the general situation of the school in all spheres was worse ranging from low enrollment, poor academic standards, corporal punishments, high rate of school dropouts, indiscipline, and low teachermotivation. However with the introduction of the child-friendly school concept all these have gone to the extinction; and remarkable results have been registered within five years of the project; enrollment has increased from 178 pupils in 2011 to 380 in 2015, teachers have been oriented on the good school approach, parent, pupils and teachers good school committees have been established, hence making everyone a protagonist of the approach
Supporting girls in management of menstrual hygiene We have benefited through the SCORE trainings; they have equipped us (female pupils) with the skills in making our very own sanitary local pads for own safety Scovia, P. 6, Child Care International Primary School Kitgum. The project does not only help the female pupils alone for their safe days but it also imparts skills for survival. They have made sanitary pads and sell to other girls in their communities hence earning a living” Sharon P. 6, Child Care International Primary School Kitgum Some girls of Child-Care International P. S during a training session in the making of re-usable sanitary pads
Key Learning –best practices and Areas for strengthening Best Practices § CLVs remain key in providing sustainable protection mechanisms in the community § The adoption of legal outreaches to reach to the communities § Adoption of Mobile VRS in birth registration § The scaling-up of school activities to involve all teachers
Key Learning –best practices and Areas for strengthening § Our work with non-formal CP structures remains fluid § Complete/ successful referral remains an uphill task § Although a lot of progress has been made with mobile VRS in birth registration, its not cover the entire country.
Challenges and opportunities • Staff changes/ movements within the CP sector • School-based activities follow the school calendar • Birth registration remains a challenge is some areas of the country
Challenges and Opportunities • The Amendment to the Children Act with a specific provision criminalizing corporal punishment in schools re-enforces our move to positive discipline • The NIRA harmonizes birth registration to a single authority • The two-year extension is an opportunity to consolidate our gains, drawing lessons from our past experiences.
Priorities – Focus for Year 6 • Strengthen our work with the non-formal CP structures- using the mapping inventory/ update it regularly and closely work with the mapped structures • Strengthen our work in schools- using model schools/ teachers and support new DREAMS schools. All schools should be classified as “good schools” • Consolidate the work of CLVs
Cont. Priorities • 100% birth registration using the mobile VRS • Scaling-up legal clinics to reach all the target households. • Completion of the documentation exercise to put together the best practices in a single, exciting form to share with the rest of the world.
