Report This Organization

A child protection organization that offers socio-legal support to children in contact with the law as survivors of violence and as perpetrators of violence.

CATCH Programme Overview

Our programme is designed to enhance the access to justice for children in contact with the law in Zimbabwe. It does so by enabling them to access legal aid and case management services in a just and timely manner. Education and awareness is also done in order to increase knowledge on juvenile justice and as a preventive measure.  The programme is also designed to do research on juvenile justice in Zimbabwe and uses the information acquired for advocacy purposes and appraisal of the programme. Key to reintegration of young offenders is skills development in order to address issues relating to their economic status which are a major push factor into crime.
