We firmly believe that:

  • Every child is unique and has an intrinsic value.
  • Every child is entitled to nurture, protection and the chance to develop to his or her full potential, and opportunities to contribute to the common good.
  • The family and the child welfare system have specific responsibilities, but society at large share the responsibility for promoting healthy human growth and development. 
  • Child participation at all levels is essential for the development of society.
  • Openness, trust, accountability and a commitment to continuous quality improvement.
  • Partnership, collaboration and networking to achieve outcomes.
