The Africa Children's Summit

is a continental forum that seeks to give children a platform for participation. Driven by children from Kenya, and amplified by Mtoto News, the Summit’s goal is to empower African children and create a space where they feel seen, heard and engaged by their peers and community. The Summit brings together children from across Africa and beyond to share their experiences on matters of children rights and protection; the unique challenges they face; interventions by their governments and share recommendations or solutions. The Summit is child-led and is to be hosted by children in Nairobi Kenya on the 11th April 2023. The inaugural Summit will be graced by the Vice Chair of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child.
