Pledge to Unite For Children

I pledge to,

Protect children from my anxiety and their own

Tell them the truth, however difficult it may be

Acknowledge their curiosity, even if I am not able to nourish it

Never compare them to their peers

Never try to fulfill my dreams through them

I prioritize their happiness over achievements

I trust every child’s capacity and so,

I pledge to follow their lead!

2460+ pledges taken so far

Highlights from ISEY 2019

Panel Discussion: Together, Apart – Uniting Efforts for Children in the New World Order

With children out of school, physical distancing as the new norm, and children’s rights under threat, the new world order has “turned back the clock” on years of progress made on children’s well-being. However, it’s not all bad. As a human race, we’ve been built to adapt: we’ve seen a tipping point in technology-enabled education and the promise of a new education policy in our country.

What can we, as influencers of change in the education space, do to create a better tomorrow for children? Join us for a panel discussion where we can come together to unite our efforts to secure the future of the nex-gen and create a better tomorrow for children.
