Child Rights Unit


AGHS has been engaged in the promotion and protection of the rights of the child and actively campaigned for Pakistan’s ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. In order to give a central focus to the rights of the child, AGHS established the Child Rights Unit in 1994. 

The Child Rights Unit is a project of AGHS. The objectives of the Unit are:

1.       To create awareness on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).

2.       To promote the rights recognized in the CRC.

3.       To undertake initiatives for the adoption of laws and policies and for the creation of mechanisms for the implementation of the Convention at the national level.

4.       To monitor the performance of state agencies and institutions and identify good practices as well as those which undermine the rights of children. To conduct training in order to improve practices and enhance capacity of state institutions, judiciary and non-government organizations for the protection of children’s rights
