We are a global network of organisations and young people committed to ensuring that the rights of children and young people on the move are respected and protected.

Vision and principles

Our vision is a world where children and young people on the move worldwide enjoy their human rights, are not discriminated against, thrive, and have a future.

We believe that governments and practitioners working with children affected by migration should be guided by 9 principles. We know that won’t happen overnight, which is why we are engaged for the long haul.

What we do

We empower children, young people, their families and communities, learn from what works – and what children say works - and campaign for lasting change in their lives.

We empower children and young people to be at the heart of our alliance and campaigning

We raise awareness about the realities and rights of children and youth on the move

We campaign for children on the move to be at the heart of inclusive laws and policies

We provide a platform for learning and collaboration and share knowledge about what protects children and youth on the move
