The organisation is a non-partisan, non profit making and non-governmental organization committed to the protection, promotion and enhancement of the rights of the child through court representation, advocacy, research and law reform. The organisation was founded primarily by a group of Christian Lawyers to respond to the need for provision of juvenile justice following a research and baseline survey in 1997 on the provision of justice to children in Kenya. The research showed the absence of institutional mechanisms to respond to this issue. The organisation was born to respond to this need and was officially launched on 7th December 1998.
