More About Us.

The Child Rights Alliance.

The Child Rights Alliance is a collaboration of civil society, government agencies, the community and all stakeholders to protect at least 6,000 children from abuse. ChildLinK and the Rights of the Child Commission will be the leading organizations in this alliance.

The Alliance has four major objectives:

  • To build the capacity of Community Based Organizations in Regions 3, 4 and 5 to conduct sensitization sessions, provide child care counselling and parenting skills education in an effort to increase awareness of the rights and responsibilities of the child, child abuse and child protection measures.
  • To further build the capacity of Community Based Organizations in Regions 3, 4 and 5 to engage and mobilize stakeholders in their respective region to form a regional network whose aim is to advocate and implement better child protection policies and procedures.
  • To produce four thematic research papers to better understand the situation in Guyana as it relates to child abuse. The findings of these research will guide the formulation of policies.
  • To engage the public through a public education campaign on the findings of the four thematic papers. This will increase general awareness of child abuse and the need for child protection.
  • The Child Rights Alliance is committed to a better Guyana. Child protection is a matter of national development. Children will one day assume leadership in all aspect of Guyanese society: economic, political, cultural and social. It is therefore incumbent upon us to create an environment which will realize their holistic development and by extension, a bright future for our beloved Guyana.
