Children’s rights, the cornerstone of a just and equitable society, are sadly too often neglected, leaving countless young lives in turmoil. Necessities such as education, healthcare, and safety from violence, elude many children worldwide.
In 2019, one in six children was living in extreme poverty. It puts children at greater risk of domestic violence, child labour, sexual exploitation, teenage pregnancy, and child marriage.
A glimmer of hope is that many organizations are striving to secure a brighter future for every child. While well-known organizations like the International Labour Organization (ILO) and UNICEF play a prominent role, there are several remarkable institutions that work tirelessly to combat child labour.
In this blog, I will talk about these leading organizations that have made significant strides in advocating child rights. From grassroots initiatives to global entities, these organizations champion the cause through advocacy, policy reform, and direct support.
Save the Children was the first global movement for children, declaring that children have rights. Their programs prioritize education, healthcare, and livelihood support to empower children and families, ensuring they have access to better opportunities. Save the Children work in over 100 countries, doing whatever it takes to give children a healthy start in life.
IJM is a global organization dedicated to ending slavery and violence against the poor. The organization partners with local authorities in 17 countries to combat trafficking and slavery, violence against women and children and police abuse of power. They collaborate with local authorities to rescue victims, provide aftercare support, and hold perpetrators accountable.
And hey, if you happen to know any organization that could benefit from our creative services, send them our way. We’d be absolutely thrilled to lend a hand!
