Arigatou International – End Child Poverty releases its 2022/2023 annual report

Speak Up For Children’ was our clarion call within the reporting year. Aware of the multiple crises in the world today; with children often bearing the greatest brunt of these crises, we sought to demonstrate the need for each of us to play a role in advocating for the rights, dignity, and wellbeing of our children. From children themselves to faith leaders, representatives from Faith-Based Organisations (FBOs) and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), to government authorities; each of us has a unique responsibility to ‘Speak Up For Children’.

The major highlight of the year was the ECP@10 campaign – – commemorating 10 years since our inception as Arigatou International’s Interfaith Initiative to End Child Poverty, in 2012. This Campaign provided a platform for rights holders and duty bearers to “Speak Up For Children” and translate words into impactful actions aimed at ending child poverty.

As you will read in the report, we further actively sought opportunities for children to engage in dialogue and co-creation of solutions to address poverty. From the Children’s Solutions Lab, the SDGs Academy for Children, representation of children at the High-Level Political Forum and global International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (IDEP) event – all were valiant platforms for children and adults to ‘Speak Up For Children’.

This report is a testament that we remain steadfast in working hand in hand with children, ensuring they are active contributors to the solutions and ideas that shape their futures.

As we present this report to you, we also extend our heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support and dedication to our mission of creating a better world for children. Enjoy the read! >
