Community for Children's Rights
CCR's purpose is to equip city councils, schools, community groups and social workers to resolve the moral dilemmas that they face when trying to protect children from violence. CCR conducts research, designs interventions that transform people’s mindsets, builds a community of protectors, equips young people to break cycles of violence, and helps local authorities to govern in the interests of children.
