  • KAACR started in 1988 as a national liaison committee on the rights of the child to popularize the draft UN convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and to lobby for its adoption and ratification. At its formation, the primary duty was to monitor and evaluate the implementation and non observance of the principles and provisions of the CRC in Kenya. This duty remains part of KAACRs mandate although this has expanded to include other programs.


    KAACR has grown tremendously, over the years, in terms of staff, programs, budget, image and profile. Due to the growth and success of its work, the organization has curved out a positive image and credibility, with regard to child rights, in the country and beyond the borders.
