WHO WE ARE
Regional Network of Children and Young People Trust (RNCYPT) is a child and youth focused organization founded in 2012. RNCYPT works in Zimbabwe and has alliances in Central, Eastern and Southern Africa. Our work focuses on transforming how societies treat children and young people; through ensuring that children and young people are active citizens who demand access to all their rights, hold duty bearers to account and mobilize communities for the respect, promotion and fulfillment of their rights.
WHAT WE DO
We Work In Synergies With Others
RNCYPT works with local and regional child rights organisations and movements to achieve results for children and young people. We are a member of the Zimbabwe Child Rights Coalition, African Movement of Working Children and Youth (AMWCY), Girls Not Brides, GBV Network and the Global Partnership to END Violence Against Children

We Provide Platforms
RNCYPT provides platforms for children and young people to participate on issues affecting them e.g. child led reporting to international and regional child rights conventions i.e. UNCRC and ACRWC respectively.
