About Us

PIKIN-TO-PIKIN Movement is a Child Centered Community Development Non Governmental Organisation operating in Sierra Leone. The mandate of the organization is child protection. Pikin-to-Pikin Movement was formed in 1994 when Sierra Leone was engulfed by a devastating rebel war. The organisation was legally registered as a Non Governmental Organisation in 1998 with the Government of Sierra Leone under the Ministry Of Development and Economic Planning. During the war, the rights of children were grossly violated.

Many children were forcefully conscribed into the fighting forces; the national army, the rebel forces or the civil militia. As a result, these children missed out on education. Many children also died because of preventable childhood diseases such as diarrhea diseases. The situation in Sierra Leone for many years was such that there was very little protection for children. It was in a bid to salvage the situation of the children of this nation that Pikin-to-Pikin Movement was formed primarily to strive for an enabling environment for the survival, development and protection of children. The main goal is to strengthen and utilize the potential of children to take active part in their own development and the protection and promotion of their rights.
