We are building a world free of family-induced childhood trauma.
For The Children (FTC) is promoting physical, emotional and spiritual healing for child victims of neglect, abuse and abandonment through intervention programs, education and advocacy.
- Dignity – We treat all people with dignity, displaying acceptance, kindness and compassion.
- Courage – We are unrelenting in our service for the betterment of the individual, families and society.
- Belonging – We facilitate interpersonal and community connectedness.
- Prevention – We believe it is better to build stronger children that to heal broken adults.
- Security – We believe safety and freedom from harm are human rights.
- Transformation – In spite of the hardship, given the opportunity, we believe that all young lives can realize their full potential, healing and purpose in the world.
For The Children staff and volunteers are motivated by the example Christ set to share a common goal, with people of goodwill, of caring for those Jesus referred to as “the least of these.”
Our focal element is a flag — a highly symbolic icon. Both historically and universally, a flag is a sign, a symbol, and a proclamation. A flag can represent freedom, independence, pride — a cause worth fighting for.
Flags embody idealism — they stand for something. This flag stands for children.
The For The Children flag belongs to all who share our vision to eradicate family-induced childhood trauma, worldwide. It acts as a manifesto, a symbolic proclamation of allegiance to the children, for the children.
It says — it shouts — that as the bearers of this flag, we will act for the children, in favor of the children.
We will stand by the children.
