Every Child Counts ::

Stephen (Greenflame) pointed to this new organisation Every Child Counts set up by loads of the groups that work with and for kids. Their goals are clear:
What are we seeking?

Every Child Counts wants to encourage all political parties to demonstrate their commitment to sustainable social and economic development by putting children at the centre of policy development.

While political parties may have different views on the detailed policy initiatives required, those committed to children will:
  • Commit to putting children and families at the centre of policy development and implementation
  • Ensure every child gets a good start
  • End child poverty
  • Reduce child abuse and neglect
These four issues are priorities for political action. Evidence shows they impact directly on prospects for New Zealand children.

Policy Overview

IF you (a) live in NZ or are a Kiwi and (b) want to get involved THEN they have an "advocacy toolkit" to help you get started. They are also involved with or holding events round the country, though if you live in Auckland and are not a Girl Guide there's nothing listed for the next month or so...

What's this post doing on a "biblioblog"? Well, the Bible has lots to say about a God who is the strong "redeemer" of orphans, the protector of the helpless, and also a bit to say about our duty to get stuck in too!
