Become a Citizen 4 Change

Using the wisdom of the crowd to protect East African children from violence.

Citizens 4 Change is a community of citizens in East Africa building safe and inclusive societies for children and young people.

Violence and maltreatment of children costs East Africa over $20 billion every year and inhibits the region’s aspirations to develop inclusively.
63% of East African are under 24 years, and of those 68% are under the age of 14. The future of the Continent lies in young people maximising their potential but 73.5 million of them report experiencing physical violence and 26.5 million report experiencing sexual violence (Ministry of Gender Labour & Social Development, 2015; Rwanda Ministry of Health, 2017; UNICEF., 2011, 2012).
