Advocacy promotes justice for 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.
Our advocacy means amplifying the voice of the least heard, highlighting children’s issues and promoting concrete solutions to better impact and benefit children as a whole.
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”.
How does advocacy work?
Advocacy is about empowering people and influencing policies.
Through advocacy, we help address the causes of poverty and injustice by promoting public involvement and government policies that uplift the well-being of children.
Citizen Voice and Action
Citizen Voice and Action is our approach to social accountability. It is empowering communities to create meaningful conversations that will help improve services that impact the daily lives of children and families.
Partnering with Champions for Children
To amplify our advocacy, we engage partners at all levels.
We work with like-minded groups and stakeholders to tackle various issues affecting children’s rights
