NANDI COUNTY CHAMPIONS FOR CHILD PROTECTION AND SUPPORT THROUGH THE COUNTY CALL CENTRE.
Nandi County recognizes children’s rights, fights for their space and has always championed for child protection to ensure that their rights & dignity is upheld.
It has championed for this through the Toll Free Call Centre 1548 where members of the public can call and raise issues surrounding child protection. The call center has also raised awareness on child protection through outbound calls and SMS to the general public.
This comes in timely as the African continent celebrates Day of the African Child, 2021 themed “30 years after the adoption of the Charter: accelerate the implementation of Agenda 2040 for an Africa fit for children”.
The county is partnering with Childline Kenya (116) www.childlinekenya.co.ke in creating awareness and optimizing access to child protection services as well as strengthening response to reported cases. Child Helpline 116 – Kenya
According to Emily Bett, the Call Centre Manager, Nandi county call centre has in the recent past handled over 50 cases of child related issues. She calls upon the citizens to protect children’s rights and make use of the TOLL FREE 1548 adding that the County Government of Nandi is always ready to listen and handle any issues raised.
We celebrate Kenyan Children.
