The study was carried out in Wakiso district within Wakiso Town
council. It was carried out on the effects of domestic violence on child
welfare. Its objectives were to find out the causes of domestic violence in
the area, the effects of domestic violence on child welfare and family
stability as well as the measures that could be put in place to solve the
problem of domestic violence.
The study used a descriptive research design to describe issues relating
to domestic violence and child welfare, the study population included the
local people, the human rights organizations that protect the rights of
children and the local authorities in the area. Simple random sampling
and purposive sampling procedures were used in the study to obtain a
sample of 80 respondents from the study population. Data was collected
from both primary and secondary sources using key informant interviews
and interview guides and Data was analyzed qualitatively in themes that
reflect the study objectives.
The study found out domestic violence was being caused by
drunkardness, poverty, adultery and bad behaviours of children. This
domestic violence resulted into divorces, death of children, street
children and lack of education among children. This problem of domestic
violence was being solved through laws, sensitization of communities,
establishment of children’s homes and punishing of the people who
promote domestic violence.
Therefore the study recommended that the government and other
stakeholders should step up their efforts to educate the communities on
how to respect the rights of each others in order to have stable homes
that give children better growing opportunities.
