Abstract: The research study examined “Uganda Human Rights Commission and the protection of abused children in Kampala district, Central Division. Descriptive research design was applied to a research population which included; Uganda Human Rights the UHRC officials, media officials, NGO workers, the police, community members, MPs, and the children both from the streets and Naguru Reception Centre. On the effectiveness of Uganda Human Rights Commission in protecting the rights of abused children, the study revealed that UHRC still performs below expectations as far as protecting abused children is concerned. On the extent of children’s rights protection in Kampala city, the study revealed that there still exists poor coordination between UHRC and other human rights agencies like the NGOs and the police in protecting the rights of abused children in Kampala city. On significant relationship between UHRC and protection of abused children’s rights in Kampala city, the study showed that; considering the negative correlation between UHRC activities and the extent of UHRC protection of abused children’s rights, led to the conclusion that there is no significant relationship between UHRC and the protection of abused children’s rights in Kampala city. The study concluded that the rights of abused children are not fully protected by Uganda Human Rights Commission. Recommendations were later made and they included; UHRC and the government should embark on a project to have Conventions on the Rights translated into major local languages among others.
