Advocacy

World Vision creates various efforts in addressing the causes of poverty and injustice. By increasing understanding of poverty and injustice, World Vision seeks to promote public involvement and government policies that help alleviate poverty.World Vision’s advocacy on children’s rights is anchored on the UN’s Convention of the Rights of the Child which is widely ratified by governments in various countries and covers wide spectrum of social, cultural, economic and political rights of children. 

 

 

 

 

 

Doing advocacy entails partnering, engaging and convincing people to act on issues that affect children. World Vision works with several partners at the local and national levels to deliver results and encourages children’s articipation. In the Philippines, we advocate on these critical issues facing the world’s children:

 

  • Positive and Non-violent Discipline on Children Act
  • Foster Care Bill
  • Child Affected by Armed Conflict Act
  • Refusal to the amendments on the Juvenile Justice Law
  • Alternative budget allocation for education and nutrition
