Programs and Partnerships
All businesses, regardless of size, location or sector, have potential to impact children’s rights and contribute to achieving the SDGs. But given the scale of many of the world’s problems, widespread collaboration is essential. Forming partnerships benefits all involved. Partnerships allow for exchange of knowledge and experience. They enable organizations to avoid duplication of efforts, and they’re better suited for building long-term business and social value than unilateral action. The benefits of a successful children’s rights program extend beyond doing good for children. In the business community, corporates are increasingly seeing links between maximizing societal impact and maximizing shareholder value.
