What We Do.
WHAT CHILDREN GLOBAL INITIATIVE
DOES FOR UNDERPRIVILEGED CHILDREN
We’ve learned that the only sustainable way to make change last is to adopt what we call the “Children rights approach”
First, by looking at children's issues in their entirety, rather than through the silos of education, health, child labour, child abuse, foeticide/infanticide and so on.
Then by understanding the underlying root causes of the deprivation – gender, caste, livelihoods, displacement, geographies and the like. Finally, mobilising each local community to find long-term solutions to these problems, by ensuring relevant laws and policies that guarantee implementation of their rights.
At Children Global Initiative we believe in child rights for three reasons – because the alternatives are unjust, illegal and ineffective.
WHAT WE DO
Children Global Initiative role is that of an enabler between three groups of people – the children, the grassroots initiatives working for child rights at the grassroots level and people like you, who come together for child rights.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
we support the grassroots-level initiatives to restore the basic rights of children, including street children, the girl child, bonded in labour, children of commercial sex workers, physically and mentally challenged children and children in juvenile institutions.
We select these initiatives based on their track record, the issues they address and the impact of their work on the lives of children, their families and their communities. We support them in various ways – through funding, training, advocacy and networking with other organisations working in similar areas.
Make lasting change possible.
