BACKGROUND:

george
George Kayange, founder of CRIDOC in India where he worked as an intern
Child Rights Information and Documentation Centre (CRIDOC) is a non-profit organisation established to create access to information on on issues that affect children and young people through Research, Monitoring, Documentation, ICT, Media and other communication channels.

The Centre was founded as a documentation and ICT project on child rights issues in 2003 by a Malawian media intern, who was at the time working as a voluntary editor for the Child Labour News Service (CLNS), an on-line project run by Global March Against Child Labour in New Delhi, India.

Author of children’s book on HIV/AIDS entitled “Gone for A Walk,” and a journalist by profession, the intern was particularly inspired by the heart-rending true stories of exploitation of children and young people, featured on daily basis on the CLNS website, and sourced from various news agencies around the world, including Malawi.

Today, the Centre puts particular emphasis on the uniqueness of every child and young person, and the complexity of grappling with issues concerning their welfare in Malawi, especially in the face of the gruelling poverty, HIV/AIDS and orphanage, high illiteracy rates, child labour, juvenile justice, the plight of street children, and many other social ills affecting our children. As such, the Centre therefore takes a lead at providing guidance, motivation and information to children and all those involved in research and child rights issues, in terms of facilitating for the necessary interventions, available resources, education and professional support.

The Centre respects the rights and dignity of children and all those concerned with their education and social welfare, and seeks to promote awareness on child rights issues through media, public relations, outreach programmes, seminars, conferences and other traditional and non-traditional modes of communication. It actively participates in advocacy movements at national level.
