A delegation from our country, led by the Director General for Human Rights, Manuel Mba Nchama, is taking part in the 3rd International Conference on Childhood Protection, which is taking place in the city of Havana (Republic of Cuba) from 24th to 26th May.
The aim of these working sessions is an exchange of experiences regarding actions implemented by Governments in favour of children’s rights.
The head of the delegation, Mba Nchama, pointed out actions implemented by our Government, beginning with the ratification of the Convention on Children’s Rights in 1992; the creation of the national Committee on Children’s Rights through Decree number 100/1997; the creation of a Children’s Parliament, through Decree number 21/2013, and the important function of the Support Committee for the Equatoguinean Child (CANIGE), set up by the First Lady of the Nation, Constancia Mangue de Obiang, to support all Equatoguinean boys, girls and adolescents in general, and in particular children who are disabled, blind, or have clinical difficulties.
The Director General for Human Rights concluded his speech by reporting that CANIGE offers education, health and other humanitarian support to the vulnerable groups in Equatorial Guinea.
