0ur focus is ensuring the provision of legal aid and psycho-social support services to children. Most specifically, we ensure that the rights of children in contact and conflict with the law are respected and promoted. Upon contact, each child is allocated a lawyer and a social worker who will provide technical support to the child as they interface with the justice system. The lawyer and social worker employ their technical expertise ensuring that access to justice is child sensitive, just and deleiverd in a timely manner. In order to increase the profile of awareness on child justice CATCH conducts awareness campaigns through, conversation cafes, mobile legal aid clinics and child rights clinics. CATCH also conduct research on child justice in Zimbabwe and uses the information acquired for advocacy purposes.
