Organisation Description

Many charities and NGOs are started by an accidental encounter with poverty. Some go on to develop sound rights-based operations, while many simply act from a well-meaning, heart-felt sense of charity without respecting the rights and dignity of those they seek to help.

International Child Campaign was started by design. The founders and trustees saw a need that wasn't being effectively met by existing development organisations. The need is to enable children to have an independent voice.

The creation of International Child Campaign was based on decades of experience in international development.

The International Child Campaign founding team brings together a diverse and in-depth experience of the sector, strong policy and governance skills, a powerful expertise in campaigning and advocacy, operational excellence and representation from Asia, Europe and the Americas, who have all also worked in Africa.
