"Creating a world that is truly fit for children does not imply simply the absence of war. It means having the confidence that our children would not die of measles or malaria. It means having access to clean water and proper sanitation. It means having primary schools nearby that educate children, free of charge. It means changing the world with children, ensuring their right to participate, and that their views are heard and considered. It means building a world fit for children, where every child can grow to adulthood in health, peace and dignity."


Welcome to AINU website, enjoy Your stay.
"It's not enough for women to speak out on the issue ‑- for the message to be strong and consistent, women's voices must be backed up by men."

Please join us in getting access to clean & safe water for children
