Advance the safety and rights of children and adolescents.


Safe and empowering environments for children and adolescent girls.​

Our Principles

Our work is anchored in children’s rights, supported by a strong belief in children and adolescents' voice, agency, and resilience.


We believe that violence is preventable. We dare to imagine a world without violence and work boldly toward creating it.


We start by listening, this grounds us and our partners in a more nuanced understanding of the strengths, challenges, and barriers that children and adolescents face in their daily lives.


We believe in the importance of place, culture, and self-determination. We invest in community ownership and leadership because we believe that lasting change can only come about when those who are affected by the problem are driving action for change.


We continually learn from our work and use evidence to inform programs, policies, and practices.


We strive to develop authentic relationships with and among our partners, paying attention to power dynamics. We are in it for the long haul.

We facilitate spaces to nurture connections among leaders to leverage the power of collective action to catalyze deep and lasting change.

Child Safeguarding

The safety of children and Adolescents, particularly those interacting with our representatives and the programs we support through partners in communities is paramount. CRVPF has a Child Safeguarding Policy to ensure this safety. We are committed to implementing this policy and best practices in child safeguarding to fulfil our legal and moral obligation to protect children associated with CRVPF’s work.
