Innocence, the first word that comes into our mind when we think of a child. Smile, that immediately prevails on our faces when we see a little kid eating chocolate.Their sparkling eyes are enough to make someone happy, at least for a moment.
No doubt, the world without children is like a body without soul.
The most interesting thing about those cute angels and fairies is that they tell all, they know and then stop. The little artists , their little dreams are the blueprints of their ultimate achievements.
“Children First” organization
In this world of error and terror, there is still a bunch of sensible people who realize the importance of their most valuable resources.One of these bunches is “Children First” organization.
“Children first is a non-profit organization which was started to strive for children interests. Children First is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) and currently, working in AJ&K, Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa and South Punjab.Its core thematic programmes include child protection, education, health, and livelihoods.
A hope, that keeps alive..!
Hope is just a four -lettered word but it has a world in it. When hopes vanish, the life comes to an end.
This society has proved itself as a hope-giving society, a hope to live, a hope to survive, a hope for a better tomorrow and a hope for bright future.
A society where children and their interests come first..!
It gives the children, a chance to fill the books of their lives with their favorite colors.It provides them opportunities to make their dreams come true and fills their hands with stars and flowers of courage.
It has shown its contribution towards realization of child rights by engaging key stakeholders in multiple ways.This organization is one of the best plate forms to help the really needy and oppressed children.
The social mobilization unit of Children First has established 44 Child Focused Development Forums and 5 community-based care monitoring committees for children without parental care.
These people know that “Nothing you do for children is ever wasted.”It has done a lot of work for children, some of which is highlighted below:
- Practical launching of Tahaffuz Project in Rawalpindi District for the protection of children especially working children, from sexual exploitation and abuse.
- On 12 of June 2011 Children First organized a cricket match competition amongst the children in labor.
- The ‘International Day for Children Living and/or Working on the Streets’ was launched on 12th April 2011 to give a louder voice to them,ceremony was concluded on a very positive gesture of having lunch together with the street children.
Round the globe…!
In Partnership with University of Huddersfield,Children First organized a session to discuss the issues specially about child mental health.The session was jointly organized by Human Resource Learning Center (HRLC) and Children First, around 45 persons from Save the Children, UNICEF, UNESCO, SPARC, SAHIL, SRSO, Muslim Aid and The Salvation Army participated in the session.
Children First believes that the demand must come from the right holders. Its first preference is the street children and laborers. As children are our future, they must not be bare-footed, striving for food and clothes.They are our tomorrow, and the today that has no tomorrow is drowned in the darkness of night.
This organization has begun the work of making sure that the world we leave for our children should be a little bit better than the one they inhibit today…!!!
