Establishment (General Background)


The National Council for Child Welfare (NCCW) was established under its law in 1991 as a national mechanism concerned with planning and coordination for all child related action in Sudan and follow-up the enforcement of the international and regional child conventions ratified by Sudan, topped by the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) with the aim to guarantee children human rights, including the right to survival, development, protection from harmful influences, abuse and exploitation, as well as full participation in family, cultural and social life, whereas the passing of the Child Act in 2010 further solidified this national commitment to be implemented  in cooperation and coordination with the government institutions and the national and international civil society organizations working in the field of childhood.

The National Council for Child Welfare Law was issued in 2008 to rescind the law of 1991 as an institutional and regulatory necessity to upgrade the work of the Council and keep abreast of the developments in the various childhood fields.
