Introduction: Mtoto na Sheria is a Swahili word that roughly translates to Children and the law .This law club is designed to empower Children by educating them about their legal rights and responsibilities. Through interactive resources, discussions, and activities, students will learn about the laws and regulations that affect them in their daily lives, as well as the resources available to them when they face legal challenges.
