The Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation (KSCF) is the global umbrella for the Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation-India based in New Delhi and the Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation-U.S. based in Washington, D.C. Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi serves as the Global Chairperson of the Foundation.
What began as one man's drive to fight for the rights of children, has manifested into a global foundation of like-minded people committed to creating a world fit for children. The Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation’s Global Advisory Board is comprised of strategic partners, leaders from the private, public, and NGO sectors, and subject matter experts in a variety of areas.
The three pillars of KSCF are Outreach & Engagement, Direct Action, and Policy & Training.
At the heart of our work is ensuring the well-being of children everywhere, by also directly empowering children to stand up for their rights. We believe that to achieve our mission, there is a need for evolution in the approach to policy, law and practice – away from a single issue to an interdisciplinary approach – across child protection, education, health, peace and conflict resolution.
We believe the secret to achieving the results we seek lies in forging strong partnerships across sectors (civil society, business, government, academia). We also believe in mobilising resources where they will have the strongest impact and an outcomes-based approach based on transparency, accountability, and collaboration.
“We need collective actions with a sense of urgency. Every single minute matters, every single child matters, every single childhood matters."
