Thank you for caring about Children's Rights – in reality not just in theory!

Together, we can help manifest children's rights - a child-friendly world is a kind place for everyone.

Using both fiction and non-fiction, I find ways to say what needs to be said, to make issues visible. I also consult directly with children and support them in making their voices heard.

I'm setting up this page to help you join me, so that we can do this together! Whether it's just about supporting awareness of children's rights, or about developing your own strengths as a self-directed education facilitator, this is a way for you to join the journey.

As many of you know, in addition to my writing work, I'm busy helping set up Riverstone Village, South Africa's first Democratic Self-Directed Education project, which at this sensitive point in it's process, cannot afford to pay me. I do not want to start selling my articles to the papers that currently publish them, because what I write needs to be uncensored and free to distribute without copyright. Also, paid writing usually involves deadlines - not realistic for me given the needs of Riverstone Village.

Patreon is my solution, thank you for joining me here!

As we all know, children have a full range of rights, but they are very seldom respected – even in policy and law. Generally, children are treated as fourth-class citizens. Their rights are so routinely violated that this is seen as normal, and we may not even notice what's going on until it is pointed out. Bless you for your own open eyes!

You help make this all possible!

My main foci are education, play, and early childhood, simply because these are currently some of the most misunderstood areas of children's rights. Anything important relating to children's rights, is fair game.

When children's rights become real in our world, what a domino-topple of transformation we will see!

The true character of society is revealed in how it treats its children.” - Nelson Mandela

Bless you for revealing your own true character, and being one of the heroes our children need!
