NEGLECTING CHILDREN ,THE BIGGEST CRISIS


 Child neglect is the biggest crisis facing the world.
"It is even worse than corruption. Neglected children grew to become armed robbers or street children. Neglected children end up not going to school or dropping out early leading to future unskilled or semi-skilled labour force. They therefore, are potentially trapped in poverty circles since they are likely to attract very low pay wages that hardly cater for their individual basic needs as well as for their immediate families.
 Judan say yes childen"s cenntre are enrolled (located in Nsumbi/Gganda village wakiso sub-county in Wakiso district) God has commanded to care for and advocate for them. Children are the sacrificial lambs when families breakdown. Because they have no political right to be heard and no vote, they are usually marginalized More than 150 million children between the ages of five and 14 years work for a living in developing countries, with half of the number working full time. About 1.8 million children are also exploited in prostitution and pornography and 1.2 million others become victims of trafficking annually itís the work of judascc to serve as an advocate for children to release them from their spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and to enable them to become responsible adults. Child advocacy for us is the office of raising awareness of the needs, neglect, nurture and the potentials of children in poverty, whiles challenging those within our influence to greater involvement and effectiveness on behalf of children. judanscc is targeted to enroll 1000 children in more than 30 government and private schools by 2013 and to develop and nurture the child in physical, spiritual, emotional, mental and moral development. Why judascc I always thought that beggars were those who were homeless Ė but these are not beggars. They are working children. These children work on the streets everyday and their number is increasing. I never saw these many beggars when I was growing up. Maybe it is the population. But now the street kids are everywhere, outside restaurants, outside malls and at traffic signals. Either begging or collecting scarps for selling Many children are selling scraps, but in my heart I feel angry with the parents for allowing this. At times I have seen that the parents are fit and fine and are simply using their kids. some of the judanscc children enrolled at Judan say yes international schools and day care centre judanscc is a recognized non-profit organization that provides programs and services in education and health to improve the well-being of children who face the harsh realities of poverty. To carry out its mission, judascc engages staff and volunteers who are trained to understand the positive impact that education and good health can have on children and on community. judanscc will take its programs and services to any place where children are denied of education and health. It will train and engage a local group of staff and volunteers to work collaboratively with and within a community to help it overcome those factors that most impede social and economic wellbeing. In promoting hope, education, love and protection, HELP strives to make the world a better place and to make anyone associated with the organization better for that experience Target group * Children living with HIV/AIDS * * Street children * * Children living in excessive poverty * * Orphans and vulnerable children * * Children selling scraps (children working on streets) * * Working children (house girls, house boys, children working in stone quarries) Every child has the right to education without discrimination. In Uganda, huge numbers of children are denied this right by their parents or guardian, yet the government of Uganda provides free education to every primary child some guardian/ parents are ignoring the government schools, failing to provide adequate education for their children bright their future. judanscc is calling upon the governments; donorís to address grave violations of the right to education for Ugandan children. Some reasons why children work on streets Know that the street children are not always homeless, but simply poor like the majority of other children They explain that l, their parents are unemployed. They send their kids to beg, collect and sell scraps because they know that children earn more money as people do not like to give to adults. Also, people look more kindly on child street hawkers, and as a result the kids earn more money. What the rural poor who come in drove into the city need is proper training. In Uganda children are seen as insurance policies. Hence the rush to get married early and have children so that they can be made to work and support the family. The parents who force the children to work have no shame because they are uneducated and have themselves done that for 12-15 years. So they think it is normal.
