African Child Policy Forum
The African Child Policy Forum (ACPF) is located in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and is independent, not-for-profit, pan-African institution with the focus on the African child. The aim is to put children on the public agenda with encouraging policy research and dialogue "for the realisation of their rights and wellbeing and for bringing about lasting social and economic Progress in Africa." 
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child  other regional and international human rights initiatives are used as guidelines. ACPF identifies and develops pro-child policies and programmes in collaboration with governments, inter-governmental organisations and civil society "to promote a common voice for children in and out of Africa."

The African Child Observatory
The African Child Observatory is a centre that gathers knowledge and information about children in Africa. That is also beneficial for regional, national and international bodies, such as the African Union. The lack of information are the major barriers to promote and to track the progress of children’s rights and wellbeing.
The African Child Law Centre
The African Child Law Center programme includes the following projects:
- Law Reform and Harmonization in Africa
- Justice for Children
- Extending Legal Protection to Children
- Promoting Child Friendly Laws, Policies and Practices 
The Family and Child Institute
The family and child institute promotes that the family is the most important issue while talking aboput child protection and child well-being. The family plays a key role in the physical, social and mental development of children. The two main areas are parenting and economic and social policies that can have an impact on child poverty. Other issues such as HIV/Aids, child deprivation, abuse and exploitation are also adressed.
