Children`s Corners

Children Corners are community based centres where children between the ages of 6 years and 18 years meet after school hours. These centres operate in the community and are facilitated by volunteers at that level. Children’s Corner are an important component in child protection because apart from enhancing various skills for children, children in need of special care and protection are identified and referred to appropriate service providers. There are approximately 5000 children corners across the country. Over 500,000 children patronize the corners.

The department has just finished developing and translating the Children’s Facilitators’ Guide. This is the main document guiding children corner activities in the country. Currently the department is training 300 children corner facilitators from 10 UNICEF districts of Mzimba, Nkhatabay, Dedza, Mchinji, Mangochi, Zomba, Machinga, Lilongwe, Mzimba North, and Blantyre. Plans are underway to enxtend the trainings to other non UNICEF Districts with Government Funding.
