Sustainable development goals

I pledge to put all effort into the protection of children with albinism and of those exposed to particular forms of violence due to their appearance

I pledge support for the human rights of all children.

I pledge in particular to put all effort into the protection of children with albinism and will also lend my voice in the cause of those who – like them – are exposed to particular forms of violence due to their appearance.  These must be protected and afforded a life devoid of all forms of depravity.

No form of violence against children can be rationalized – no matter how old and no matter how entrenched in culture.  I pledge to initiate and actualize concrete steps to enable children in these circumstances to have the comfort of a safe family, school and community environment.

The time has come to protect children – children of all shapes and forms. No more words are needed; but action; the type which will actualise and sustain their human rights.  To this end, and within the scope of my work, I will do all in my power and ability to contribute to a violence-free world for children with albinism while supporting overall initiatives to end violence against all children. I hereby pledge full commitment to this vision by the year 2030.
