IICRD Child Rights Ecology

IICRD frames its work with children and their communities through a systems perspective entitled the Child Rights Ecology. The Child Rights Ecology is inspired by IICRD’s logo of the Flight of the Thunderbirds in which the integration of the black thunderbird of positive cultural traditions for children and the red thunderbird of the CRC metaphorically “take flight” in breathing life into child rights.

Imagine a world where we build on the core strengths of children, their families, and communities, to create dignity, belonging, and justice for all.
