AfriChild: The Center for the Study of the African Child and the Care and Protection of Children (CPC) Learning Network are pleased to announce a joint webinar series focused on late-breaking research calling attention to the realities of vulnerable children in Uganda to better inform innovative interventions that protect and advance children’s rights to protection, development, and well-being.

In this first webinar of the series, we will focus on street-connected children as a particularly vulnerable demographic in Uganda. The need to find a lasting and effective solution to creating safe environments for development has attracted a variety of responses from the Ugandan government, researchers, and practitioners. Despite a number of initiatives and policy responses, insufficient data on the nature and extent of street-connected children’s vulnerability in Uganda continues to present a challenge to government, civil society, and development partners. In trying to bridge research and practice, the webinar will spotlight a new, data-driven understanding of the realities of vulnerable children and highlight innovative interventions to protect and advance their protection and well-being.

Presenters:

Dr. Firminus Mugumya is a professional social worker teaching at the Department of Social Work and Social Administration (SWSA), Makerere University Kampala, Uganda.

Damon Wamara is the Country Director of Dwelling Places Uganda, a Christian Non-Governmental Organization that works in Uganda with street connected children.
