Justice, Child Rights & Protection Scholarship


Undergraduate Law Students

The Milat Foundation Fellowship named after his son as the Darrell Milat Scholarship award University scholarships to students pursuing an undergraduate degree in law with strong interest in justice, child rights and protection with a view to working for and upholding justice in the courtrooms and the entire legal department in Cameroon, especially but not limited to cases where children are victims.

There is great need to adopt proper forms of justice to protect children and respect their rights or needs. But in Cameroon, many children are victims of faulty judicial systems. Generally speaking, corruption in many ways has killed more children in Cameroon compared to any other imaginable disease. With this initiative, we aim to fight corruption in a highly corrupt justice system/legal department. There are different ways children can ecouter the justice system, ranging from victims, witnesses, they can be in conflict with the law or as parties to a justice process such as in divorce, child disputes or custody arrangements. Especially with the last sets of examples, verdicts are hardly fair as authoritoes are wrapped in clouds of corruption and/or favouritism.

There is in fact, a complete lact of child-sensitive procedures in the Cameroon justice system, mainly due to lack of will and it is thus common to have resolutions that neglects the "Child's Best Interest" and terribly affcets the child's wellbeing and development.

Justice for children is designed for the benefit of all children in contact with the justice system to ensure that the children are better served and protected (SG GN J4C 2008, UNICEF). The Milat Foundation Fellowship (The Darrell Milat Scholarship Program) is one way the Foundation work to advocate and promote justice for children in Cameroon when they encounter the justice system directly or indirectly.

Corruption has killed more children in Cameroon compared to any other imaginable disease. We aim to fight corruption in a highly corrupt justice system/legal department. As rational adults, we have a moral and legal obligation to stand up and speak out for children who are being deprived of some or all of their rights to childhood and the benefits that naturally comes with it. These children cannot speak for themselves. Especially when child rights or welfare issues are brought before authorities such as the welfare, the legal department or the court, it is crucial for these authorities to understand that all judgements relating to child issues should be based on the universally acceptable norm of the "Child's Best Interest" and not clouded by corruption and other social ills.​

"We're committed to training the next generation of legal professionals who will ensure justice in a corrupt legal system and understands the necessity for the universally acceptable norm of 'child's best interest' in handling matters that concerns children."
