“There’s no trust more sacred than the one the world holds with children. There’s no duty more important than ensuring that their rights are respected, that their welfare is protected, that their lives are free from fear and want and that they grow up in Peace. “(Kofi Annan, Former Ghanaian diplomat: 7th UN Secretary General and 2001 Nobel Peace Prize Winner.
“States, Parties shall protect the child from all forms of physical or mental violence, injury or abuse, neglect, maltreatment or exploitation, including sexual abuse” ( Article 28 of the Republican Constitution of Ghana “.
