Mr. Muhammad Sajid Jokhio

Minister - Social Welfare Department

We believe all children deserve to be treated equally regardless of their social status and religion. We take it upon ourselves to ensure that children, the future of the country, are looked after well. Please join us and help eradicate the menace of child abuse, child labour and exploitation of children. Together we can make a difference.

Waheed Shaikh

Mr. Abdul Waheed Shaikh

Secretary - Social Welfare Department

Children must be protected from the ills and evils of society. It is our collective responsibility and duty towards both children and dear homeland to protect and nurture the future of the country. Pakistan will grow by leaps and bounds if children are accorded a free environment to live in. We all must play our part in ensuring this country becomes a safe space for them.

Bux Ali Meher-

Mr. Bux Ali Mahar

Director General - Sindh Child Protection Authority

At the Sindh Child Protection Authority (SCPA), we have pledged to eradicate the menace of child labour, child abuse; be it emotional or physical, and save children from being forced into early marriages. After the 18th amendment in 2010, the responsibilities to protect the asset of the country's children further delegated to provinces in an attempt to better manage the affairs. I would urge the people of the province to play their due role responsibly and do not hesitate in reporting cases of child abuse, labour, and early marriages to the SCPA at the earliest.


Authority to create awareness regarding child protection



To work for the promotion, protection, and fulfillment of child rights as enshrined in the constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.



To inculcate the values of the modern and civilized culture in our society so as to save our children from violence, abuse, exploitation, and neglect.



To ensure the implementation of Sindh child protection authority act, 2011 and rules, 2016 in letter and spirit with all the efforts in a result-oriented way.


Only 34% of children under five are registered at birth nationally. Children in Pakistan are vulnerable to many forms of violence (physical, psychological, sexual) and exploitation, including economic exploitation and child trafficking. Nearly 30 years after Pakistan ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), no public coordinated child protection case management and referral system, as aligned with international standards, has been established.
