CHILD PROTECTION COURSE
The 14th Child Protection Course sponsored by UK Government through BPST (A) which commenced on 22 March 2021 at HPSS was concluded on 02 April 2021.
The 24 participants were drawn from 10 Countries (Brazil, India, Kenya, Uganda, Mali, Sierra Leonne, Sudan, South Sudan and Zambia) and are serving in Military, Police Service and Correctional Services in UN and AU Missions.
The graduands were challenged to always incorporate Child Protection and Human Rights into their programme while executing their duties since detention of children for their actual or alleged association with parties to conflict remains a disturbing reality. Abuses of children have a dramatic impact not only on the lives of children, but also on the social fabric of society in affected countries.
The event was officiated by Commandant HPSS Col H C Maghanga. Also in attendance were BPST (A) Gender and Human Rights Advisor- Dr. Sally Wangamati, SO1 PSO Lt Col Gichohi, Lead Facilitator- Ms. Fatuma Ibrahim, Course Coordinator Ms. Catherine Cherotich and HPSS Staff.
