We hold as Truth that every Child has the Right to an Education that will allow them to assume their Rights and Responsibilities as adults.
We support Laws that promote subsidies for free education and the infrastructure needed to provide Distance Education for children in remote areas and slums.
We assert that all Children have the Right to enjoy the highest attainable standard of Health, possible.
We support medical research, telemedicine, the provision of permanent and portable health programs and facilities, as well as the delivery of services for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of physical and mental illnesses.
We support the Right to Equal Opportunity for children with Special Needs, in order to allow them to fully enjoy all the Human Rights.
To accomplish this goal, promote the development of AFAO programs
Right to training can help to empower children-by providing them with the knowledge to achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.
Promote peaceful and inclusive societies Right to protect children from violence, exploitation, conflict, natural disaster and neglect
Gender equality by raising girls’ awareness of their sexual and reproductive health and their child rights
Ensure that the child is cared for appropriately and that the care is in his/her best interest. Support informal alternative care placements, monitoring and follow-up. Promote quality Care and protection of children.
Children born in low income households to exit the poverty cycle making our appeals for children education support a big step to leverage the future of orphaned children.
AFAO dissemination of health information is to get everyone involved; caring most about health of others and in particular the health of Orphaned children.
