“KidsRights gives a voice to the voiceless”Desmond Tutu - patron of KidsRights and the International Children’s Peace Prize since 2008
Mission and Vision
Children are changemakers. KidsRights works with children to create a world in which their rights are guaranteed and they are enabled to realize their great potential. KidsRights is convinced that realizing children’s rights more effectively calls for the perspective, experience and authority of children themselves.
We ensure that children are being heard. Together with children, we ask global attention for their power as changemakers and children’s rights issues. Also, we empower children as positive and resilient changemakers. We act with children, amplifying and accelerating their actions in their communities and beyond. Lastly, we make sure everyone is informed about children’s rights. Through our research we provide insight in the status of children’s rights worldwide.
