Three features, one meaning. A child with open arms, the whole world fits in its embrace.
NCR started out as a group of people at first, it later became an organization and today an official body with specialized programmes in 5 different spaces for every child, teenager and young person.
Each logo perfectly represents the evolution of the Network for Children’s Rights’ identity over the years.
The original logo, simple and subtle, just some writing with a pencil in black and red, gave its place to an explosive fuchsia “candy”, a rainbow and a white human figure holding it in its open arms.
Today, with colour being dominant everywhere, the new logo of the Network for Children’s Rights depicts clearly the essence of NCR: a happy child, of every identity, every ethnicity, every social origin, a child which NCR supports in order for it to stand firmly on his feet, a child that plays, runs, laughs.
The child shape that is distinct, borrows from the logic of the education game tangram, which is used around the globe to develop the skills, imagination and creativity of children.
In the new logo, the child’s movement is dynamic, almost as if it were jumping, preparing to embrace or it may be celebrating something “of theirs”. It is happy, expressing its joy in all the colours of the rainbow.
Network for Children’s Rights: Beyond Words and Conventions
The work of the Network for Children’s Rights is not limited to words or conventions.
It is practical. It is the spark that brought about its creation two decades ago, when in 2000, a small group of friends came for the first time in contact with the International Convention for Children’s Rights of the UN, seeking a way intervene in an incident of abuse of a minor, a topic that even recent current events have been highlighting as an issue that has over time plagued the reality of children.
The group soon transformed into an Initiative Team, composed of teachers, writers, artists, journalists, university professors and parents aiming to spread awareness and put pressure so that the International Convention for the Rights of the Child may be respected. In 2004 the Initiative Team acquired legal form and with 80 founding members, founded the Non-Profit Organization initially called Network for the Protection of Children’s Rights.
Since then, the Network for Children’s Rights continues important initiatives and interventions aiming to the promotion of, sensibilization to and respect of the rights of the Child, which unfortunately, continue to be violated and remain essentially unknown to a lot of people.
Additional weight is given to activities involving the children themselves, in order for them to understand in-depth their rights. In this context, NCR is addressed to all children without exceptions, through:
- Specialized Programmes of Informal Education
- Creative Workshops
- Social and Cultural Activities
- Activities of Advocacy and Holistic Intervention
aiming at the protection and well-being of children.
