Once again this year, the International Bureau for Children’s Rights (IBCR) has mobilised to strengthen the protection and respect of children’s rights alongside its partners in the field, from Quebec to Burkina Faso, including Honduras and Morocco. Discover the actions carried out around the world in the IBCR’s new annual report.

The IBCR has worked tirelessly to strengthen respect for children’s rights and to enable those who are in contact with them on a daily basis to accompany them in the best possible conditions in the face of growing instability in the world, from health crises to the resurgence of armed conflicts and climate change.

Through projects such as Parole aux jeunes or REPERE – Rendre effective la participation de l’enfant pour renforcer son expérience, in Quebec, or Xalé Sama Yité in Senegal, the Bureau has also acted to strengthen the role of children in the implementation of their rights.

With its projects, particularly in Burkina Faso, Senegal and Quebec, the International Bureau for Children’s Rights is more than ever committed to informing, mobilising and equipping children to empower themMartin CAUSIN, Executive Director of the International Bureau for Children's Rights (IBCR)

Because there is still a long way to go to ensure that every child enjoys his or her rights equally in all circumstances, the IBCR will continue to work for sustainable child protection systems that can adapt to new challenges.

Together, in this changing world that requires constant adaptation, let us continue to unite our efforts to rise to the occasion for children!Théophane NIKYÈMA, President of the Board of Directors of the International Bureau for Children's Rights (IBCR)
