What We Do
GNRC members cooperate on a voluntary basis on interfaith projects to promote children’s well being and their rights locally, nationally, regionally and globally. Our cooperation takes many forms: we share best practices, offer advice and encouragement, mobilize faith-based and other resources, seek to maximize synergies among our individual efforts, and link our local and national efforts for children with larger global advocacy on children’s issues. Inspired by our faith in children and working closely with children and young people themselves in all of our projects, we aim to forge an inclusive, multi-stakeholder global movement that brings all people together in the common cause of ensuring that every child can grow up safe and sound and reach his or her full human potential.
