In addition to that, they spread information about child rights in accordance with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).
The CMC members work on many different topics highlighting the problems of youth, including child protection, gender issues and HIV/AIDS. The CMC has produced videos and print media articles about homeless kids, HIV infected people and women’s rights violations.
