Children's Rights & Advocacy

Working on children's rights.

Standing up for children and youth, raising awareness about children’s rights and encouraging children and youth to get involved and be heard. Children and families need strong actors that will advocate for them, and they need the opportunity to advocate for themselves.

Situation Overview

Around the world, the rights of children and youth are often not respected, and young people have little input on the issues and policies that affect them. Without adequate support and family-friendly policies, parents can struggle to stay strong and keep their family together, leaving their children at risk. And children who have lost parental care have limited access to quality alternative care that both supports them as they grow up and helps them successfully transition to independent living.
