Who are we

The Center for research, defense and promotion of the rights of children and adolescents – ILÊWASI

ILÊWASI is a Non-Governmental Organization for Development (NGOD) formed by a team of professionals and volunteers from different parts of the world who believe in Human Rights, fundamentally in the rights of children and adolescents and in the wealth that Interculturality offers. We work in research, defense and promotion of the rights of children and adolescents.

ILÊ means “house” in yourubá and WASI means “house” in Quechua, a fusion of Latin America and Africa. With this we want Ilêwasi to be the home for children and adolescents around the world: The place where rights are fulfilled.

Our mission

A world in which the rights of the child are fulfilled and therefore it is fairer.

Our vision

Research, defend and promote children's rights around the world working with an intercultural network and team.
