The Eastern Africa Child Rights Network of Civil Society Organizations (EACRN) was established in March, 2014 to coordinate efforts by civil society organizations in Eastern Africa in advocating for children’s rights. The network’s mandate is to implement programmes that are focused on the realization of Children rights as contained in the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (ACRWC) and the United Nations Convention on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (UNCRC). This, the network seeks to achieve through capacity building of national CSOs coalitions and information sharing among network members. The network also endeavors to engage with national and regional bodies in the promotion of the child rights agenda
