Welcome Isabel Mwangi
Kesho’s Child Protection Officer
Isabel, a Family Lawyer, has been volunteering with Kesho for a year
but, happily, this month she officially joined the team.
She’s doing an amazing job ensuring children are
safe, happy, healthy and with time to play as well as study.
45% of Kesho’s primary children were found to be frequently left alone at home or having to go to work after school; sadly, a few even defiled.
Most of what we see is due to a lack of awareness of risk and also poverty complicating lives and limiting choices.
Isabel handled 57 cases as well as hosting 8 events this year with parents and children to raise awareness of risks. With 85% of parents engaged she’s certainly having an impact.
She’s also working at county level particularly to improve access and systems for reporting
It’s so good to know our children are now protected and learning more about their rights.
