Our Beliefs

All Children Matter

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” - Martin Luther King Jr.

Our Beliefs

We believe in children. We believe in their right to be heard and participate in decisions that affect them.

All human beings on our planet regardless of geography, religious orientation, skin color, gender, or sexual orientation, are of equal value.

We are in solidarity with peaceful movements to prevent the marginalization of human beings everywhere.

All children, regardless of race, religion, sect, or caste have the same fundamental rights.

We believe in collaboration, inclusion, partnerships, ordinary heroes, honesty, agility, straight talk, and miracles.

We believe in giving each other the benefit of the doubt, leveraging each other’s best skills, listening, learning, and caring deeply about all stakeholders.

All children have the right to grow up in a stable, loving, and nurturing environment.

We believe that all of us are a stakeholder in the care of the planet and each other the world over.

Our work is centered around the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child, which India ratified on 11 December 1992. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (commonly abbreviated as the CRC or UNCRC) is an international human rights treaty which sets out the civil, political, economic, social, health and cultural rights of children all over the world. The convention defines a child as any human being under the age of eighteen.
