The Child Rights Governance Global Initiative (CRGI) is aimed at building societies that fulfill the rights for all children setting out two main objectives: Strengthening state institutions and mechanisms for the implementation and monitoring of children’s rights; and increasing awareness and capacity among civil society and children to promote children’s rights and hold duty bearers to account. Working towards the goal of achieving all rights for all children can sometimes sound rather abstract or remote from children’s lives. What kind of impact does work on Child Rights Governance actually have? This report tries to answer the question by presenting case studies that show how work on CRG can hold governments to account, influence budgets, empower children, and strengthen civil society and national legal systems. Hopefully, it will inspire readers to do CRG work to achieve all rights for all children.
