The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and other relevant human rights instruments guide all actions in support of orphans and vulnerable children, in the recognition that development is the realization of a set of universally applicable, inalienable rights. This approach recognizes that children are both rights holders and participants; they are not merely the recipients of services or the beneficiaries of protective measures.

The Convention on the Rights of the Child affirms that the family has primary responsibility to protect and care for the child, and that governments have the responsibility to protect, preserve and support the child-family relationship. The Convention also specifies the responsibility of the State to provide special protection for a child who is deprived of his or her family environment. Especially relevant articles of the Convention are listed in Annex 2.

The underlying values or ‘guiding principles’ of the Convention, described below, influence the way each right is fulfilled and serve as a constant reference for the implementation and monitoring of all efforts to fulfil and protect children’s rights.
