What's your business doing to positively impact children?

At Global Child Forum we know that action inspires action.  That’s why we make it our mission to lift best practices from around the world that showcase how business can not only do good, but also do well, by respecting and supporting children’s rights.

Most often, business’s responsibility towards children has been limited to the abolition of child labour. While much work remains to be done in this area, it is also now commonly recognised that business affects children’s rights and well-being  in a myriad of other ways as well.

Children are impacted by business as consumers, as members of employees’ families, as future employees and, yes,  as eventual business leaders. They also live in the communities and share the environments in which businesses operate, and are sometimes affected more severely than adults by the hazards of industry, such as pollutants.

Business has an obligation to understand how their business impacts children and ensure that their operations advance children’s wellbeing. After all, investing in children is the ultimate sustainable investment.

Does your company have a story to tell? Share it with us and join a growing repository of companies  who know that by investing in children, they are also investing in the future. Not sure where to start on incorporating children’s rights into your business’s operations? Learn from others who are already on this journey.

During the May, we will showcase one company example every day, via our website and social media channels, that demonstrates how business can positively impact children in their operations.

Send you story, initiative, policy, partnership arrangement or program to info@globalchildforum.org and get ready to be inspired.
