About us

History of the organization

Kids Empowerment was founded in June 2016 by Anna Kurdova, Christophe-Claude Charles-Alfred and Caroline Loussouarn Newman, legal experts who identified major gaps in the protection of migrant children.

NGOs addressing rights of children on the move are faced with unprecedented and increasing numbers of migrant children. As a result, they provide emergency relief or social services and raise awareness about non-compliance of States with their international obligations, but rarely have the adequate resources or time to provide concrete structural solutions based on the actual needs of the youth or successful practices.

In response to the policy limitations and lack of legal coherence within host countries compliant with the rights of migrant children, Kids Empowerment aims to realize the full development and potential of children and youth by full compliance with international law and best practices.
