This research thesis is intended to analyze to what extent the legal requirements providing for children rights have been enforced in the rural areas. The historical genesis and development of the children's rights provisions will generally be reviewed under literature review, but much emphasis will be on the post period from 1990 to date when Uganda started ratifying the international conventions this research is geographically centred on Kamwenge district as a case study. This district is located about 300km from the capital Kampala and is found in Western Uganda, boadering the districts of Kabarore, Kyenjonjo, Ibanda, and Kasese. It is one of the little known districts in Uganda with a big population of children, but whose rights are grossly abused with impunity despite several legislations and conventions established to ensure the welfare of children. The researcher intends to analyze the conditions children grow through in their daily life, the various forms of suffering experienced by the children, the causes of the suffering and their effects. Also to assess the role of the stakeholders such as government institutions and non-government organizations in promoting and protecting children's rights and to what extent they have performed these roles. Both qualitative and quantitative methods will be used in this research through appropriate research questions in form of questionnaires, interviews, and general observations finally, the researcher will come up with recommendations and the way forward followed by general conclusion
