ABOUT CRNSA

The Child Rights Network for Southern Africa (CRNSA) was established in 2012 and was then registered in South Africa in 2015. The vision of the Network is ‘A Southern Africa where children’s rights are respected, protected and fulfilled.’ For this vision to be realised, the network promotes practices and policies that fulfil children and adolescents’ rights and welfare through national child rights networks in the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) member states. CRNSA also engages with regional and international institutions such as the SADC economic building block and the African Union (AU) through frameworks and structures such as the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child plus the Committee therein, and the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child for improved quality of life for children.

CRNSA offices are headquartered in Pretoria, South Africa and works eleven national child rights networks in 11 SADC countries. The eleven networks represent some 2000 child rights organisations in southern Africa.
