ANPPCAN is a Pan-African network that promotes child rights and child protection in Africa. It was founded in 1986 in Enugu, Nigeria at the first Child Labour Conference. The organization has national chapters in 26 African countries and is headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya.
Our mission is to create and enhance partnerships and other opportunities for the prevention and protection of children from all forms of maltreatment, thus ensuring the realization of children’s rights.
ANPPCAN’s 26 chapters respond to the specific needs of children in their countries by developing appropriate program interventions. The Regional Office implements national and regional interventions for children that include direct program intervention, advocacy on specific issues as well as networking and partnership building on issues affecting children in Africa.
