Our advocacy contributes to creating the key conditions for change across all countries and regions where we operate, securing high-level political will, generating evidence and know-how, strengthening civil society and mobilising resources for child-protection reform.
We achieve this in a number of ways:
- we use evidence from our demonstration projects to show governments and civil society organisations that deinstitutionalisation can work and to advocate for change on a bigger scale
- we lobby to influence the process of law and policy-making and we closely monitor their implementation
- we strengthen our partners’ capacity to advocate effectively and we build critical mass by establishing national and international alliances
- we unify the voices of individuals and organisations that share the goal of eradicating institutional care through our global campaigns
- we target global influencers such as the European Union, UN agencies and development donors, to secure their support and mobilise resources
- we work in partnership with international bodies in Geneva, Brussels and New York to exchange knowledge and secure a place on the agenda for the global eradication of institutional care of children
