The Network of African National Human Rights Institutions (NANHRI) is a regional umbrella body that brings together 44 National Human Rights Institutions in Africa whose Secretariat is based in Nairobi, Kenya. The Network seeks to support and strengthen National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) in Africa as well as to facilitate coordination and cooperation among themselves and between them and other key human rights actors at the regional and international level.
NANHRI in partnership with Plan International – Pan African Office (PAO) with the financial support of Swedish International Development Cooperation (SIDA) have collaborated in a project, the Pan Africa State Accountability Project (PASAP) to strengthen the capacity of African NHRIs to carry out effective human rights programming and to interact with key international and regional human rights mechanisms, in particular engaging with the African Committee of Experts on the Rights and Welfare of a Child (ACERWC) and Child Rights civil society organisations (CSO) coalitions.
The first activity under the project was a capacity assessment and mapping exercise in order to identify NHRIs level of engagement in the promotion and protection of children’s rights and the needs thereof. Subsequent to the capacity assessment and mapping exercise was a two day training for NHRIs to enhance their knowledge and skills to enable them prioritize children rights programming and actively engage with other actors including the state for better promotion and protection of children’s rights.
It is against this backdrop that a networking workshop between NHRIs and Child Rights CSOs is envisaged.
