There is more and more emphasis across the world about the youths being the leaders of tomorrow. It is quite clear that, where children are able to think properly, their views and wishes must be given due weight. Rwezaura supports the fact that better protection should be guaranteed for children. In the world today, it is more and more evident and necessary that; decisions affecting children must not only be made by adults, but that children must also be involved as stated by the following observation: ‘Our children are tomorrow’s leaders, workers, scientist and parents. This means that their survival, health, nutrition education and protection must be seen as a key priority…’ The Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) has laid the ground rules for the protection of the child, but nations have not done enough as to the protection of children against violence, seeing the large number of children suffering from violence.Africa has also responded favorably, through the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (ACRWC).
