Short description:
Eye of the Child aims to promote and protect child rights in Malawi, especially for those who suffer from sexual exploitation, HIV/AIDS, crime, poverty and homelessness. Eye of the Child also encourages young peoples' participation in this process through lobbying, advocacy, and other programmes.
