Overview

The Child Rights Information and Documentation Centre (CRIDOC) puts particular emphasis on the uniqueness of every child and young person, and the complexity of grappling with issues concerning their welfare in Malawi, especially in the face of the gruelling poverty, HIV and AIDS and orphanage, high illiteracy rates, child labour, juvenile justice, the plight of street children, and many other social ills affecting our children.

As such, the Centre therefore takes a lead at providing information to children, NGO advocates, and researchers.

The Centre respects the rights and dignity of children and all those concerned with their education and social welfare

We, therefore, seek to promote awareness on child rights issues through media, public relations, outreach programmes, seminars, conferences and other traditional and non-traditional modes of communication.

We also actively participates in advocacy networks at national level.
