AGE OF SEX CONSENT


Description

PROJECT TITLE: CAMPAIGN AGAINST LOWERING THE AGE OF SEX CONSENT

DEVELOPMENT PARTNER UAF

YEAR: 2019

CRAWN Trust is working in partnership with COVAW, Hifadhi Hub and other actors in the campaign against lowering the age of sex consent from 18 to 16, based on the laws recognition of anyone under the age of 18 to be a child. Secondly, consent is valid where the one giving it is appreciative of the consequences arising from engaging in what they consent to.

Daisy Amdany, Executive Director – CRAWN officially opens the consultative and working sessions for the campaign of lowering the age of consent at a hotel in Nairobi, Kenya.

A person under 18 does not have the capacity to consent. Thirdly, sex could have many detrimental effects to the minors among them interruption to their education and effects on their reproductive health among others. CRAWN Trust is calling upon stakeholders to reject this proposal which was mad by some judges.
