3. Marginalized and abused children and women (MCW) – This program is for Women and vulnerable children that are abused as results of gender, race, ethnic origin or socio-economic status. Higher levels of vulnerability are often associated with children with disabilities, who are orphaned, indigenous, from ethnic minorities and other marginalized groups. Other risks for children are associated with living and working on the streets, living and detention, and living in communities where inequality, unemployment and poverty are highly concentrated.
The establishment of The Child and World Centre for rehabilitation is our goal to tackle this menace
