About Us

 

Our Mission

Is to end the exploitation of children. Through our free "Community Schools" we are working hard to ensure good quality education is accessible to marginalized children. Good quality education means preparing our students to be globally competent with 21st century skills so that they can compete in this highly competitive global economy.

Join us if you wish to make a difference because education is essential for success. Besides education we will be conducting several campaigns focusing on topics such as child labor, gender discrimination and child trafficking etc.

 

Child Friendly Movement (CFM

Our primary purpose is to reduce all forms of child abuse, and to help motivate people in that purpose by creating a social chain reaction. 

In order to create a more child friendly world, all children should be given the  status of global citizens. The movement believes that every child deserves a purposeful quality education. It is their birthright for their future.

Child Friendly Movement (CFM) believes in the  UN conventions on the Rights of the Child. The movement believes that if we protect children with laws and give them a good quality education then 95% of the world's problem will be eliminated.

 

CFM work in several ways:

The Child Rights Global Theatre workshops designed to raise awareness among children about rights and help to protect them from trafficking, while creating a platform to develop their voices and build their own leadership capacity. 

 Community schools set up in villages known for trafficking; to both educate adults and children and especially to enable parents to become more economically independent, so that violence against children decreases. The Child Rights Global Theatre workshops we hope will also attract more people to school. 

Income generation programmes will be provided to parents and children. 

 

Learning how to use the internet 

Safely, so as to reduce cyber crimes against children. Participants may be eligible for government benefits through this programme.
