Internationally, children’s rights are so divided in terms of sectoral interventions. Everyone is a specialist – legal, educational, psychological, and somewhere we felt the child gets lost in the middle of all these specialisations. For us the child is a whole person... that is why we set up HAQ. We don’t want to be a specialist organisation we believe children have a right to be themselves... HAQ looks at children across sectors and issues and makes the cross-cutting connection between sectors and issues.
