SOS Children’s Villages advocated successfully to include the world’s most vulnerable children – children who have lost parental care or who are at risk of losing parental care – in the new development framework. Even so, its adoption at the upcoming UN Summit is only the beginning.
“We have tried to remind people at every step of the journey that to have a long-term impact on the world’s well-being, it is absolutely essential to invest in today’s children. To invest in global development without investing in children is like building a house on sand,” said Richard Pichler, CEO of SOS Children’s Villages International.
“Now the hard work begins,” he added. “In fifteen short years, we all will be held accountable for the promises we make today.”
