Our Advocacy

Be An Advocate

A lot of our success is down to the invaluable time and effort given by our passionate advocates.

We tend to have 4 types of Advocate:

  • Those who unlock their talents and equip us in some way (very useful when we are such a small team!).
  • Those who unlock doors introducing new friends and supporters to us.
  • Those who unlock funding, through one or more means.
  • Those who unlock advocacy for the children who needs support and care.

What type of talent could you unlock for us?

Child Rights Advocacy

As an advocate for Child Rights you can help amplify the voices of children.

Millions of children are still denied the simple joys of childhood, love and protection. And for any change on a significant scale, it will require each one of us to start thinking of children, not as objects of sympathy, but as citizens with the same rights that we consider our due.

You can be a powerful partner to Rose of Sharon Foundation as its communicator. Speak to your friends, family and colleagues to create awareness about the situation of children, mobilise support for Rose of Sharon Foundation and its efforts to ensure that all children enjoy their basic rights.

What you can do

  • Try looking at the world through the eyes of a child. Think giant-sized doors and shoes. Imagine having to work with your computer where you have to reach over your head. Visualise living in a gigantic world where even to quench your thirst you need to deal with a heavy, huge bottle of water.
  • Ask yourself what is in the long-term best interests of children around you – your own, your neighbour’s, the child who works at the tea stall nearby, your domestic help’s/ driver’s children. Think up of opportunities you can give all of these children to play, learn, do creative things together.
  • Sit with your children and initiate a discussion or work on a project on the situation of children in your environment – in school, in your neighbourhood, on the streets, at traffic signals etc.
  • Do not employ a child as domestic help, it’s illegal.
  • Reject goods or services that employ children – search for and encourage those suppliers and agencies that employ and pay adults enough to send their children to school.
  • Start by taking a walk down to the municipal school or health centre in your neighbourhood and see what you can do to change the situation. Maybe you and a few of your friends from the neighbourhood could get together and make it a more child-friendly environment.
  • Read about Rose of Sharon Foundation volunteers who have made such change possible.
  • You can discuss with your children on how you can contribute to the cause of child rights – by volunteering, holding exhibitions to create awareness or fund-raising drives.
