What drives JIP?

In alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) the JIP Foundation wants to contribute towards sustainable development by promoting and ensuring child protection.  
The Convention on the Rights of the Child stipulate a number of “rights” children globally should enjoy, unfortunately the right on protection often lacks.  Protection against violence (domestic violence, war, etc.), injustice (child exploitation, discrimination, lack of education/health) and harmful practices (non-registration at birth, early marriage, FGM) are necessary for children to be nurtured, grow up in healthy communities and contribute to society in the future.
Children are precious in God’s sight and are allocated rights by our society which need to be promoted and ensured.
Too many children face multidimensional poverty (MPI).  
Children are being born into an increasingly connected world, where lines between local and global problems are blurred.  Also solutions are inter-connected and therefore, it is important to support organizations with different approaches, interventions and locations in their efforts to protect children.


Poverty reduction begins with children.  Protection is one of most important human needs.
The overall reality of the world’s children is described in “Reimage the Future” (The State of the World’s Children) by UNICEF 2015.  The project selection is aligned with the priorities described in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations (2015 – 2030) as well the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child.

Strategic goal

JIP’s strategic goal is to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals by partnering with local NGOs in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia working on wide range of child protection focused projects to ensure children grow up in a healthy community and have a hope for the future.  JIP would like to incorporate a strong component of child participation, ensuring children have a voice to articulate their own concerns about being cared for, protected and participating. The Convention of their Rights of the Child and the International Humanitarian Law are the benchmarks.

Objective and requirements


Girls and boys are cared for, protected and participating in society

JIP is seeking strategic partnerships with experienced local organizations, which have a proven track-record in executing sustainable community projects which foster child protection. Child protection projects include (but not exclusively);

  • Initiatives to educate parents to register their children at birth.

  • Ensure safe (health) practices for all community members (advocate against child-marriage, FGM, discrimination, all kinds of abuse, etc.)

  • Address exploitation (child labor, trafficking, sexual abuse)

  • Protect children from consequences of war, domestic violence and gender based violence.

  • Education, health, emergency relief and economic development initiatives ensuring child protection.

Prior to approval of the project an assessment of the target groups will be required as well as a detailed information about the design and planning (including budget) of the projectAfterwards financial and anecdotal reporting on the outcomes and obtained transformational change will be requested.

JIP Foundation seeks to address the root causes of abuse, neglect and exploitation and find comprehensive ways of influencing policy reform and building the capacity of the government and civil society.  To seek to strengthen community-based child protect systems at program level incorporating a strong component of child participation, ensure children have a voice.
