Assisting and supporting children while achieving positive change through initiatives and free services that empower families and increase awareness on children rights.

Presence in: State of Palestine
Focus: Other

Defense for Children International Palestine (DCIP) is committed to securing a just and viable future for Palestinian children in the Occupied Palestinian Territory.

For more than twenty years, we have supported and advocated for this child population: investigating and documenting grave human rights violations, holding both Israeli and Palestinian authorities to account, and providing legal services to children in urgent need. We will continue to demand national and international bodies enact stronger measures to safeguard this vulnerable demographic of Palestinian society.

Since DCIP’s inception in 1991, we remain the only Palestinian human rights organization specifically focused on child rights. Our highest value is the pursuit of each child’s best interests. To this end, we are guided by the United Nation’s Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), as well as other international, regional and local standards.

Soy abogada recientemente recibida, con interés y preocupación en la problemática social tras haber participado desde adolescente en voluntariados que me hicieron tomar consciencia de las desigualdades sistemáticas y estructurales económicas-sociales, de género, étnicas, entre otras y su intersección. Soy parte de DNI Uruguay, habiendo realizado un proyecto sobre la importancia del acceso a la cultura de jóvenes que se encuentran privados de libertad. Mi carrera recién ha comenzado y es por esto que tengo interés en adquirir herramientas para ejercerla de una forma responsable socialmente y defendiendo los derechos fundamentales de determinados grupos, los que les son vulnerados diaramente, y así desde mi lugar, aportar para hacer un poco más justa la sociedad en la que vivimos.
