Redeem Liberian Children’s Lost Values -Winford

By Wellington G Patrick, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

SANNIQUELLIE, March 26 (LINA) –The Project Coordinator of a local non-governmental organization says Liberian children have been abused for so long, imposing on government and partners the need to devise programs to redeem their lost values.

Speaking in Sanniquellie Alvin Winford of the African Network for the Prevention and Protection Against Child Abuse and Neglect (ANPPCAN) also indicated that parents and government must invest more in child education.

ANPPCAN is a child advocacy organization with the Action to Reduce Child Labor (ARCH) in Liberia implementing partner for the WINROCK International with funding from the United States Department of Labor.

Winford served as a facilitator during a one-day workshop organized by ANPPCAN held at the sub-office of the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection in Sanniquellie.

He emphasized that cultural orientations, parental instigated child labor, crisis in homes and communities are major agents against child dignity in Liberia and urged Liberian parents to ensure that the best interests of their children are secured and unhindered.

The workshop’s objective: ‘Creating A Child Labor Free Zone In The Region’ brought together nearly 40 participants, including commissioners, representatives of the Liberian National Police and the media.

Other participants were coordinators of the ministries of Labor and Gender, Children and Social Protection, County Health Team and social workers.
