About CRC Coalition

Our Birth

Founded in 1993, the Civil Society Coalition on the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC Coalition), formerly known as the Philippine NGO Coalition on the UN CRC, has been submitting periodic reports to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child since 1994. We also inform and participate in other human rights reporting mechanisms such as the NGO alternative reporting for the International Covenant on the Economic, Social and Cultural Rights following the Philippines’ ratification of the UN CRC in 1990.

We have 24 members to date: Association Soeur Emmanuelle, Cameleon, ChildHope Philippines, ChildFund, Consuelo Foundation, ECPAT Philippines, EDUCO Philippines, ERDA Foundation, Good Neighbors International Philippines, John J. Carroll Institute of Church and Social Issues, Kindernothilfe Philippines, Philippines Against Child Trafficking, Plan International, Salinlahi Alliance for Children’s Concerns, Save the Children, Terre des Hommes, Unang Hakbang Foundation, VIDES Philippines Volunteers Foundation Inc., and World Vision Development Foundation.


We commit to lead civil society efforts towards strengthening government accountability for children’s rights through systematic monitoring of the implementation of Convention on the Rights of the Child.


All children enjoy their rights to survival, development, protection and participation in a peaceful, safe, gender-fair and sustainable environment
