Campaign for Children’s Rights

Child marriage in Iran, permitted by law, leaves girls as young as nine feeling inferior and powerless. These young wives often find it difficult to divorce, trapping them in challenging situations and limiting their options for personal growth and development.
Thousands of young boys in Iran are forced into military service, subjecting them to physical and psychological harm, sexual abuse, and even death. Survivors grapple with trauma, leading to severe emotional distress, and tragically, some resort to taking their own lives due to the horrifying experiences they endure.
Insufficient funding, with only 1.4% of GDP allocated to education, has resulted in a crisis where 4.2 million Iranian children, especially girls, lack access to education. Shortages of classrooms and schools further worsen the situation. Efforts are being made to raise awareness and advocate for policy changes to address this critical issue.
Approximately 4 million children in Iran are engaged in child labour due to crushing poverty. They are forced to work in various sectors to support their families, hindering their education and overall well-being. The Iranian government's denial of the problem hampers progress made by children's rights activists and NGOs.
ILA raises awareness by informing the international community about human rights abuses and injustices faced by Iranian children. Through campaigns and advocacy, ILA compels international pressure to prevent these disasters from continuing, highlighting the urgent need for change.
ILA's targeted advocacy focuses on specific issues, sharing real stories to personalize the struggles faced by Iranian children. By humanizing these challenges, ILA makes them more relatable to the public, fostering empathy and understanding about the urgent need for intervention and support.
Individuals can support ILA's cause by participating in awareness campaigns, making donations to fund their initiatives, and spreading the word about the challenges faced by Iranian children. By raising awareness and supporting ILA's efforts, individuals can make a significant difference in the lives of these vulnerable children.
ILA engages the British public and the international community, fostering a global movement to address the challenges faced by children in Iran. Through global outreach, ILA raises awareness on an international scale, garnering support and solidarity from people worldwide to advocate for the rights and well-being of Iranian children.
ILA advocates for policy changes within Iran to protect children's rights, particularly focusing on issues like child marriage, forced military service, and lack of justice. By challenging oppressive laws and practices, ILA aims to create a safer and more supportive environment for Iranian children, enabling them to thrive and reach their full potential.
