Wednesday, 19 April, 2017 - 12:45

Stepping Stones International in collaboration with the European Union is embarking on a campaign to advocate and focus on child protection on sexual abuse and exploitation.

The campaign dubbed ‘ke boikarabelo jwa rona’ is a follow up to the 2014, 2015 campaign that was designed to combat the escalating problem of child sexual abuse and exploitation in Botswana under the name, ‘gaining traction by action’.

Stepping Stones International Human Rights Advisor and Project Coordinator, Chirwah Mahloko says the campaign began last year and will be coming to an end this year.

Mahloko said the project is aimed at reporting cases of child sexual abuse, and helping victims get justice and psycho-social support.

He said they were currently working on 41 cases of child sexual abuse and exploitation across the country.
