The African Children’s Charter Project
Promoting the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child
The African Children’s Charter Project (ACCP) was conceived in 2009 by Plan Sweden as a strategic initiative to improve the lives of children in Africa through the enhanced implementation of the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (ACRWC) throughout the institutional, political and public spheres of the African Union (AU).
The ACCP is a multi-partner, multi-locational four-year project whose central goal is to promote the implementation of the ACRWC in the AU through three key strategic entry points, namely:
- Directly supporting the work of the ACERWC;
- Working with the ACERWC to promote children’s rights and welfare in the internal and external environments of the AU; and
- Strengthening civil society’s capacity to engage with AU bodies on children’s rights issues.
