Our vision is a world in which every child and young person, without discrimination, is

  • Protected from violence, exploitation, abuse and neglect;

  • Empowered to participate fully in matters that affect him or her; and

  • Cared for and has access to basic services, essential to his or her wellbeing.

Every child has a right to a dignified childhood, valued and respected. We understand that this involves addressing the range of barriers children and young people face in claiming their rights, including discrimination and inequality; harmful social norms and practices; and the availability of and access to appropriate, quality services.  



Together, we work to strengthen child protection systems through collaborative, inter-sectoral partnerships at all levels, from the individual to the family, household, community, state and global. Our competitive advantage is the inter-disciplinary nature of our backgrounds coupled with extensive field work. Our approach is:


  • Rights-based

  • Equity-focused

  • Gendered

  • Intergenerational

  • Locally-informed

  • Environmentally-aware

  • De-colonising the humanitarian and development space
