WHY WE DO IT
OUR FIRST STEP
MAIN ACTIONS

In response to this situation, and with the technical leadership of Uruguayan NGO Gurises Unidos and the support of ecumenical relief and development agency Church World Service, a group of highly regarded civil society organizations specializing in the promotion and defense of children´s rights came together in 2012 to carry out the first regional report on the subject called Invisible No More.

In line with recommendations made by the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child the report aimed to:

  • Understand the impact of parents’ incarceration on different aspects of the life and rights of the children served by participating organizations.
  • Identify the main policies, programs, initiatives and support services from governments and civil society serving this group and survey the children´s perception of them.
  • Raise awareness of the issue in local and regional civil society networks and contribute to the debate and design of public policy and appropriate government responses.
