This organization was brought to my attention today. I’ve not had a chance to go through their entire site yet, but the Convention on the Rights of the Child is dedicated to the idea that children, anyone under 18, are born with basic freedoms the inherent rights of all human beings. I agree.
The Child Rights Information Network (CRIN) is a global network that disseminates information about the Convention on the Rights of the Child and child rights amongst non-governmental organisations (NGOs), United Nations agencies, inter-governmental organisation (IGOs), educational institutions, and other child rights experts. The Coordinating Unit is based in London, UK.
The network is supported, and receives funding from Save the children Sweden, Save the Children UK, UNICEF, Plan International, the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and World Vision International. Project funding is also received from the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
