WAKILI.SHA PODCAST

TAKE OFF!

Season 1, Ep. 1

Welcome aboard! On this journey, we will have fun as we explore all things children in conflict with the law ("CICL"). Who are they? Where are they? What led them there? What challenges do they face? And what can we do about it? We will be seeking to find out if the justice system really is child-friendly and where there are gaps, we will seek practical solutions that you and I can plug into. The show will be hosted by Zippie, Bright and Liz.

 

This podcast is brought to you by Wakili.sha Initiative, a Kenyan non-profit aimed at promoting access to justice for CICL law through: -

  1. Access to free legal representation;
  2. Mentorship & Talent Development and
  3. Public Awareness & Advocacy.

 

On episode 1, you get to meet Liz and Bright (yes, that's his real name!). They delve into the life of a CICL from arrest all the way to reintegration. You will know what exactly we do and why. They also reflect on COVID and what it’s meant for CICL. Finally, they explore ways in which you can act.

 

All while packing all the fun and laughter!

Celebrating the Day of the African Child 2021!

Season 1, Ep. 4
Every year, the African Union and Member States celebrate the Day of the African Child on June 16th, to commemorate the 1976 Soweto Uprising and to raise awareness on the needs of African Children. The 2021 theme is, “30 years after the adoption of the Charter: accelerate the implementation of Agenda 2040 for an Africa fit for children”.The African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (“the Charter”) envisions a child-friendly justice system. In 2016, on the Charter’s 25th anniversary, the African Committee of Experts on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (“the Committee”) adopted “Agenda 2040: Fostering an Africa fit for children”. The Agenda serves as a strategic plan to implement children’s rights in Africa and has 10 Aspirations. On this episode, we discuss, “The role of CSO's in the realization of Aspiration 7 of Agenda 2040. i.e. ‘Every child is protected against violence, exploitation, neglect and abuse’”: With special guests from the St. Patrick's Safeguarding Children Programme E.A., Shining Hope for Communities (“SHOFCO”), Strathmore Institute for Family Studies and Ethics (“IFS”), Orione, Crime Si Poa and Langata Legal Aid Centre (“LLAC”).This episode is part of a DAC 2021 project we have undertaken together with the St. Patrick’s Safeguarding Children Programme E.A., Strathmore Law Clinic (“SLC”) and Strathmore Institute for Family Studies and Ethics (“IFS”). The project is funded by St. Patrick’s Safeguarding Children Programme E.A. (part of the larger St. Patrick's Missionary Society) and Misean Cara.
