Crimes against children

Coincidentally I then came across this report from the New Vision (Kampala)

The [Roman Catholic] Archbishop of Kampala, Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, has condemned the atrocities committed against children.

He singled out defilement, forced prostitution and child-sacrifice as the most worrying crimes, which he said had endangered children and lowered human dignity.
"Child sexual abuse, which unfortunately on occasion involves parents, relatives and teachers, has become very common. Some of our children are abducted and forced to become soldiers or wives of those that abduct them.

"These have increased the vulnerability of our children, traumatised them and left indelible scars on their minds," Lwanga said.

The catholic Church has been taking positive steps:
The permanent secretary in the Ministry of Education, Francis Xavier Lubanga,
commended the Catholic Church for putting in place initiatives like the
Bannakizito association, which help children learn human values.

The minister of education, Geraldine Namirembe Bitamazire, commended the Church for supporting the educational initiatives of the Government through the development of spiritual and moral values.
