The new directions and organizational transformation being instituted by CWC towards its goal of becoming “the recognized lead advocate and monitoring body for child rights” requires the strengthening of the RC/SCWCs as CWC's major arm/structure at the sub-national level and as the critical link between the national and local government for children's concerns.

Given that CWC has no regional offices, the most that it can do in the meantime, is to hire a technical staff whose primary function is to act as the RC/SCWC Secretariat and assist the RC/SCWC perform its functions most importantly in the implementation of its planned activities.
