Our Purpose

 Equal Rights for Children was founded in December 2021 by Amadea Angela Aquino, who has personally experienced the hardships of being an illegitimate child. These are a few ways we are working towards giving all children equal rights

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

I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free
human being with an independent will.
