|Samenvatting||Corporal punishment has been technically banned in Kenya’s schools since 1972 – but it is still a routine occurrence in the country’s classrooms and homes, says Rose Odoyo, the Chief Executive Officer of|
the Kenya Chapter of the African Network for Prevention and Protection against Child Abuse and Neglect (ANPPCAN). ANPPCAN tries to counter violence through sensitisation and awareness raising. For six years
they have been running a Child Rights Awareness and Legal Education Programme in Korogocho, a non-formal settlement on the outskirts of Nairobi, and have now moved to the Soweto area of Embakasi Division to run the Soweto Child Rights Development Programme. These programmes work
to raise social consciousness of both the legal and moral responsibility to stand up for the rights of the child.
