Children Council is the forum for child participation on different issues that affect their lives. MYCN and the government supervise these councils in Mwanza Region from ward to regional level. Children have the opportunity to exercise their rights by meeting, discussing their needs and challenges, making follow up on their issues, exercising leadership skills and receiving training on different areas such as child rights, leadership, accountability and report writing. It is through the councils whereby children meet and present their issues to different leaders, duty bearers and service providers. The councils not only offer a space to defend child rights but they also prepare children to be good leaders and citizens.
