Child-to-Child is a rights-based approach to children’s participation in promoting health and community development. The Child-to-Child approach is an educational process that links children’s learning with taking action. It is a practical way in which children’s rights can be effectively implemented.
The Child-to-Child approach has been successfully implemented since 1978. Education, health promotion and community development programmes are using the approach in over 70 countries. The Child-to-Child international network encourages and enables children and young people to promote the holistic development of the health and well-being of themselves, their families and their communities.
