Children Rights in Kenya


Children’s Rights in Kenya: The Constitution and the Children’s Act protect numerous rights for children.

They include right to life, parental care, education-free compulsory basic education, religious education subject to appropriate parental guidance, health and medical care and protection from economic exploitation and any work that is likely to be hazardous or harmful to the child, and from taking part in hostilities or in armed conflicts. Children have a right to leisure, play and participation in cultural and artistic activities.

Every child has a right to a name and a nationality, protection from abuse and against harmful cultural practices, and from sexual exploitation and use in prostitution.

A child with disability must be treated with dignity, accorded appropriate medical care, special care, education and training.

Children have a right to protection from drugs and alcohol.

The Government is legally bound to deliver healthcare, education, nutrition and shelter to all children, irrespective of budgetary implications.
