Advocacy

 

Giving Voice to the Most Vulnerable Children

 

Advocating for the rights of children is an essential part of World Vision’s work. We advocate by promoting and influencing policies to protect children, especially the most vulnerable in poor communities.

World Vision‘s advocacy is anchored on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UN-CRC), which the Philippine government is fully committed "to ensure that the child is protected against all forms of discrimination or punishment on the basis of the status, activities, expressed opinions, or beliefs of the child's parents, legal guardians, or family members” and to "undertake all appropriate legislative, administrative, and other measures for the implementation of the rights recognized in the convention.”
