WEMIHS has started working on a partnership with Judiciary and Court Users towards creating room for a children’s court-a safe space where minors can freely share information or testify without intimidation.

However limited resources for the activity means lot still needs to be done to ensure the court meets the constitutional and international thresholds. The court which is only the third of its kind in the country is currently active and handling civil matters such as parental responsibility, custody and maintenance, orders for protection of children in need care and criminal matters.
