Organisation Description

RNCYPT is a Child and Youth Led organisation founded in 2012 to advance and promote the participation of children and young people in governance and other related issues that affect them. The organisation’s history goes back to 2008 when Save the Children (by then Norway) established and supported Child Led Groups across the country in order to advance child participation across a number of child related programmes. Thirty-four Child Led Initiatives (CLI’’s) (Child Led Groups and Junior Councils) across Zimbabwe were established and capacitated on child participation, child rights and child led advocacy and lobbying. The 34 CLGs formed the Zimbabwe National Coordination of Child Led Groups (ZNCCLG).
