THE CHILD HELPLINE TURNS 10 YEARS!

In November 2006, the Helpline received its first call. 10 years later, the Childline Kenya staff commemorated this anniversary with a festival dubbed “Tumekuwa - Tamasha la Utamaduni, Michezo na Ulinzi Kwa Watoto”. This was a celebration of child protection in diverse cultures. It was a peer learning experience. Staff members in their ethnic communities shared their traditional ways of ensuring children remained safe within the community through narratives and plays. They also prepared delicious traditional foods that were shared with everybody present. This helped participants appreciate the fact that child protection is not a new phenomenon and that in their unique ways all cultures have structures for child protection and for punishing child abuse.
