“In the heart of our mission lies an unwavering commitment to ensuring that the rights of every child in Pakistan are not only acknowledged but protected. We believe that the true measure of a society’s progress is reflected in how it nurtures and safeguards its youngest members.

At NCRC, we are dedicated to creating a transformative landscape for children, one where they are not only shielded from harm but are empowered to dream, learn, and grow. Our efforts extend beyond rhetoric to tangible action, encompassing a spectrum of initiatives designed to address the diverse needs of our children.

The journey to secure and promote child rights is a collective one. We actively engage with communities, stakeholders, and policymakers to foster a collaborative approach. By amplifying the voices of our young citizens, we advocate for policies that not only protect but actively enhance the well-being of every child in Pakistan.

As the second Chairperson of NCRC, I am inspired by the dedication and passion of our team, stakeholders, and community. Together, we are forging a path towards a brighter future where the rights of the child are at the forefront of our national agenda.

I invite you to join us in this noble endeavor. Your support is integral to the success of our mission. Together, let us build a Pakistan where every child’s right to a safe, nurturing, and fulfilling childhood is not just a principle but a lived reality.”
