Network for Children’s Rights (NCR)
The Network for Children’s Rights (NCR) is a Greek non-profit organisation that was established in 2004 with the aim to raise public awareness and actively intervene to address challenges related to Children’s Rights as set out in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989). NCR’s members are parents, teachers, academics, authors, artists, journalists, and in general people who respect human rights, especially those of children, and who are willing to take action to uphold and promote them.
NCR reaches out to all children, regardless of ethnic origin, race, gender, religion or language. Our mission is to serve the best interests of the child. Our vision is a world in which all children grow up healthy and happy, their opinion is heard and their rights are respected.
NCR has been supported and collaborated with many renowned institutions in Greece and abroad, e.g. Municipality of Athens, Institute of Child Health, Stavros Niarchos Foundation, A.C. Laskaridis Foundation, A.G. Leventis Foundation, UNHCR, UNICEF, Solidarity Now, AYRE, Terre des Hommes, FAROS, Save the Children, whilst is participating in various Networks e.g. Eurochild, Network for the Rights of Children on the Move, Racist Violence Recording Network), ACCMR working groups and UNHCR working groups.
