Children on the Move

image of Children on the Move
Millions of children are on the move, both within and between countries, with or without their parents. The conditions under which movement takes place are often treacherous, putting migrant children, especially unaccompanied and separated children, at an increased risk of economic or sexual exploitation, abuse, neglect and violence. Policy responses to protect and support these migrant children are often fragmented and inconsistent and while children on the move have become a recognised part of today's global and mixed migration flows they are still largely invisible in debates on both child protection and migration.



Children on the move: A different voice

The African Movement of Working Children and Youth (AMWCY) is an important voice today. With more than 550,000 members and friends in 24 African countries and organized to promote working children’s rights, it makes a constructive contribution to the African Union and to the Regional Platform on Children’s Mobility, which consists of seven international and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
