Focus on Human Rights
RCP believes that its strategic objectives can be achieved only through fulfilment of the social, economic, political, civil and cultural rights of all people.
Short-Term Intervention, Long-Term Change
RCP’s direct services are vital to remedy the specific problems faced by rejected children. But RCP also recognises that there is a need for more sustainable support than direct interventions and have been advancing the principle of long-term change through its Children’s Rights Programme (CRP).
CRP’s advocacy work is aimed at influencing change in public policy at local, national and international level in order to enhance and broaden the impact of RCP’s interventions. Through strategically directed empowerment interventions, RCP will enable rejected children to benefit from policy changes, facilitating their access to basic necessities over the longer term.
Democracy, Governance and the Rule of Law
As well as creating opportunities to protect and advance children’s economic, social, political and cultural rights, the advocacy program promotes the development of democracy, good governance and the rule of law. It is our belief that improvement in these areas is crucial to the realisation of human rights for all people, and especially those of vulnerable groups.
Assist the African Children most at risk
We value the work, honesty and integrity, both past and present, of the Administrators and Staff members, and Trustees of the RCP. Our first priority is to assist the Relief Children’s Project to grow its donor base throughout the world so that the organisation will become financially secure to assist rejected children who are most at risk.
Demonstrate Financial Accountability
Our bylaws require us to utilize financial controls to assure to our donors that the highest percentage of all contributions will go directly to support the programmes of the Relief Children’s Projects and its operations in Africa.
We strive to connect World supporters with the Relief Children’s Project and staff by providing information, fund raising activities, and an organisational structure. We look to continue developing a community made of those who live Africa, work there, and support it from the all over the world.
