It works as a networking entity. It brings together and assists child rights organizations to pursue common goals. It helps synthesize the viewpoints of member organizations and works to mobilize material and human resources to take child rights programs to scale. It provides collective leadership in program matters to member organizations but does not engage itself in service delivery. It works with lawmakers and decision-makers to bring positive changes in national laws and policies relating to children. It runs a vigorous campaign at macro level to make the civil society aware of the provisions of CRC (Convention on the Rights of the Child) and play a proactive role in promoting and upholding these rights. It also provides guidelines and assistance to member organizations to carry out awareness creating and community empowerment activities at their respective levels.
Mr. A Y M Mosharraf Hossain is the Director of BSAF.
