“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 cannot be done without 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. We also 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 on the status of children’s rights worldwide.
