The NGO International Child Solidarity works to support processes that enable children to defend their rights and as a result of this their opportunities in life. In order to reach this aim, we are implementing a program in collaboration with Bolivian and Nicaraguan organisations working towards social change and a more just society.
The right to a childhood
Our program is targeting children and youth where they are – in their neighbourhoods, on the marked and on the streets. We invite them to take part in attractive activities such as music, dance and environmental brigades. The activities have to be fun and at the same time develop their social capacities and abilities to express feeling and opinions.
Through participation in radio programs, muralism and campaigns, the children express their hopes and suggestions as to how to improve the life conditions of children and youth.
Our partner organisations in Nicaragua are: MILAVF, INPRHU, Tuktan Sirpi, Inhijambia and FUNARTE.
Our partner organisations in Bolivia are: Chasqui, COMPA, Inti Phajsi and educar es fiesta.
International Child Solidarity works with awareness raising in Denmark with the aim of promoting a more solidary and just world.
International Child Solidarity was founded in 1992. The owner organisations are constituted by the labor unions representing social workers – SL, BUPL and FOA.
How do children and youth perceive their community?
Two partner organisations of International Child Solidarity have participated in a research focusing on how children and youth perceive their own participation and citizenship. The two organizations are Inti Phajsi in El Alto – Bolivia – og Tuktan Sirpi in Jinotega – Nicaragua. They have expressed their opinions through photographs.
