Our main goal is to advocate for the rights of
children born out of wedlock.
We are an active partner for the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) under the United Nations on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) specializing in children born out of wedlock. Equal Rights for Children is the first non-profit organization with a niche that advocates for the rights of children born to unmarried parents.
Policies & Programs
Take the initiative to abolish laws that discriminate against accessing legal rights, and propose policies and programs that lift up the rights of children born out of wedlock.
Children Born Out of Wedlock
Enable children born out of wedlock and their mothers to access education, health services, job findings, grants and other government benefits.
Supports & Rights
Recognize that the term “illegitimate child” is discriminatory and must no longer be used to refer to children born out of non-marital unions
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
