The current worldwide systems and policies allow millions of children to live and work on the margins of society:
This is not acceptable and affects us all.
Together we can build a future where all children are safe from all forms of abuse and become functional productive citizens of their country and contribute to a more peaceful, equitable and sustainable world.
Friends-International is a social enterprise that:
- Protects urban children and youth from all forms of abuse within the scope of the International Convention of the Rights of the Child.
- Reintegrates marginalized urban children and youth so they become actively involved in the development of their society.
- Prevents urban children and youth from engaging in risky behavior and/or dangerous situations that compromise their futures.
- Improves the way organizations work by promoting innovative and effective approaches with the active participation of the children and youth.
- Influences all tiers of society to provide supportive environments and adopt positive behavior changes.
