Legal Support

Yezelalem Minch seeks to fight and prevent child neglect and abuse by working in partnership with government offices and community support groups. Current Ethiopian law prohibits YMMCD from being directly involved in child protection, advocacy, good governance and the like. Therefore, we work closely with legally authorized institutions – including private local bodies, government offices, and local police forces – by providing material support and opportunities for these bodies to better advocate for our most vulnerable children.

Some of the activities that exist in this program include:

  • Providing material support for legal protection units
  • Hosting sensitization meetings for community leaders
  • Organizing appeal for abused and neglected children
