Hear the voices of survivors of sexual exploitation

As we continue to reflect on the theme of the Day of the African Child “Leave no child behind for Africa’s development”, we need to go a step further and identify the other groups of children that have been left behind. One such group of children are child victims and survivors of sexual exploitation. Article 3 of the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child on Non-Discrimination states that every child shall be entitled to the enjoyment of the rights and freedoms recognised and guaranteed in this Charter irrespective of the child’s or his/her parents or legal guardians race, ethnic group, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national and social origin, fortune, birth or other status. As such no child should be left behind, all children should be given equal opportunities in order to reach their maximum potential in life.
