Addis Ababa, November 2017 - The Africawide Movement for Children (AMC) Board of Custodians, elected at the AMC Annual General Meeting (AGM) on October 1st, 2016, held a reflection meeting here in Addis Ababa to deliberate on progress in the last one year and plans for 2018. The meeting also focused on the revision of key documents: The AMC Constitution and Strategic Plan for the period 2018-2020.

The Custodians observed and agreed that AMC custodians have been undertaking various advocacy and awareness raising activities across the regions. Much of the previous year has seen custodians taking advantage of other initiatives to profile AMC. Resources mobilisation remains a challenge. Efforts are ongoing to achieve AMC objectives and advance the Movement’s agenda for children.

Custodians are committed to seeking high level political goodwill, engaging with high level government in the continent but also the Private Sector to profile AMC, mobilise resources and advance the cause for children. The coming year (2018) will see more efforts in this direction including creating advocacy around children in armed conflict following a recent study completed by the Movement – with financial support from Save the Children International.

Custodians will adopt a regional approach and inter-regional collaboration so as to enhance the impact of the Movement. This will be done through exchange programmes as well as information, knowledge and experience sharing. Members will be engaged through regional meetings as well as advocacy initiatives on children’s issues.

ACPF as a strategic partner will continue to support the work of the AMC Board of Custodians but will gradually handover its functions as Secretariat to ensure AMC’s sustainability and financial independence.

The AMC Constitution is currently under revision as agreed during the last AGM and subsequent consultations to address emerging issues and challenges so as to re-position the Movement in current contexts. The development of the AMC Strategic Plan 2018-2020 will also be finalised before the end of the year and will be guiding the Movement’s work in the coming three years.
