Using the law to mitigate the effects and impact of HIV/AIDS to children in Zimbabwe

Issues: Justice for Children Trust is an organization that provides free legal services to children in Zimbabwe. In view of the increase in number of orphans and also children who are heading households, the organization initiated the Child Law Forum project wherein children are trained on the laws of child protection including issues of birth registration, inheritance, child abuse, custody, guardianship. The trained children become change agents in their schools and communities.
