Welcome to the website of the Ministry of National Mobilization, Social Development, Family, Gender Affairs, Persons with Disability and Youth. Our Mission: To engage in social transformation through social empowerment, social protection and justice, using national mobilization, social development and Youth

The month of April will see issues relating to child abuse taking center stage here, with the annual observance of Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month.

The Ministry of National Mobilization, Social Development, Family, Gender Affairs, Persons With Disabilities & Youth, which is responsible for Child Care and Development will be hosting a number of activities throughout the country to highlight this issue.

In a national address this morning, Minister of Social Development, Hon. Frederick Stevenson, said that his ministry will be conducting a year-long sensitisation drive, in an attempt to reduce the incidence of child abuse and neglect.

The Minister also said that it is the responsibility of every individual to report any suspected case of child abuse.
