Networking has been a core strategy of ANPPCAN Uganda Chapter from our very beginning focusing on the following specific objectives:
- To lobby for relevant and appropriate policy in matters affecting children.
- To enhance the capacity of ANPPCAN Uganda Chapter and other organizations in promoting child welfare.
ANPPCAN Uganda Chapter fosters ties with the ANPPCAN Head Office in Nairobi and the other chapters.
ANPPCAN Uganda Chapter is part of several networks such as UCRNN, HURINET, ISPCAN, and continues to cultivate ties with the International Society for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (ISPCAN) through information sharing. ANPPCAN Uganda Chapter is also represented in many other networks and conferences concerning issues related to the rights of children in Uganda. In all these ANPPCAN contributes to the discussion of global issues affecting children and also benefits from the experiences of other relevant actors in different parts of the world.
