Child to Child Request

Organisation Description

Child to Child is a small UK registered charity with a global reach, now run by a group of volunteer trustees, and one part-time staff member. For over 40 years, Child to Child has been at the forefront of developing transformational approaches to children’s participation globally. Our approaches are grounded in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).

In recent years, Child to Child has run projects in partnership with local organisations and governments around the world assisting vulnerable children in Getting Ready for School, presenting children’s concerns in the Ebola pandemic, and in 2020 we developed materials for Child Active Participation in COVID 19. Right now, the organisation is undergoing a Re-imagining-finding its place in a world altered by COVID and working towards the Sustainable Development Goals with the involvement of children.
