Alana Institute is accepted as a member of Child Rights Connect


The Alana Institute joins, in early June, the Committee on the Rights of Children, Child Rights Connect, an international network of children’s rights, focusing on advocacy in the United Nations (UN).

Formed by more than 85 international organizations from countries such as the United States, Canada, Germany, Uruguay and Peru, the network’s objective is to ensure that children around the world can fully enjoy their rights, as set out in the Convention on the Rights of Children.

“Being part of this network is a recognition of our position as a global organization that looks at the well-being and rights of children and allows us to be even closer to major international discussions and bring children from the global south, especially from Brazil, with more strength to the UN system”, says Pedro Hartung, Director of Policies and Children’s Rights at Alana Institute.
