About Us

what

WE are doing?

The NINEISMINE campaign grew out of Nelson Mandela’s call to ordinary citizens to keep governments accountable to fulfilling the MDGs. Children in India took upon themselves the task to ensure the fulfillment of Goals 2 and 3 and 4 – all of which refer to children. Later the campaign grew to realize the exclusion issue of children particularly in the context on India.

Who are we?

PRATYeK, a registered society which came into existence on 9th October 2013 with an emphasis on ‘Presence and Ruthfulness for Advocacy and Training of the Young in Earth-rights and Kids-rights’. PRATYeK in Hindi means ‘everyone’ and it captures the essence of protecting and promoting all rights and opportunities to every child in India by creating a vibrant network of child rights, NGO’s spanning across very state of the country.

PRATYeK is the presence of Edmund Rice International in India. The e signifies Edmund the founder of the Christian Brothers and whose vision is the inspiration of PRATYeK. Ealso stands for Empowerment, Education, The Earth, Equity and Empathy which are some of the core values that Edmund stood for.

The Edmund Rice network gives PRATYeK access to schools across the world. PRATYeK supplements this network with its own network of global schools and child rights organizations.

PRATYeK is also the convening organization for the NINEISMINE campaign.

The NINEISMINE campaign grew out of Nelson Mandela’s call to ordinary citizens to keep governments accountable to fulfilling the MDGs. Children in India took upon themselves the task to ensure the fulfillment of Goals 2 and 3 and 4 – all of which refer to children. Later the campaign grew to realize the exclusion issue of children particularly in the context on India. They therefore incorporated a strong focus on the “last child”. However, keeping alive the need to ensure that all sections of India (the children of privileged middle-class and excluded communities) all interact together to find common solutions. The NINEISMINE campaign believes that “Child rights abuses anywhere are a concern for children everywhere”.

What is our mission and what are we doing to fulfill it?

Rooted in Presence ever conscious of our interconnectedness with all of creation and dependent on Providence, we facilitate the engagement of children from various communities with all centers of power, towards creating a just, inclusive and equitable earth community through Education for Advocacy (for Social and Eco Justice) towards creating a rights-based, just, inclusive, participatory equitable earth community We work with a preferential bias for the powerless
PRATYeK attempts to educate children and their care providers in the art of advocacy and justice with a focus on child-rights and earth-rights. PRATYeK seeks to include tools and resources for advocacy and social justice skilling in school curricula to raise awareness amongst children, and to groom young people into compassionate, conscientious and proactive young citizens- ‘kidizens’.

PRATYeK recognizes children as primary stakeholders of society and therefore seeks to provide them with local, national and international forums towards effectively engaging with policies, policy makers while ensuring the effective implementation of the same. PRATYeK coordinates a larger network of child rights organizations and networks with a presence in practically every state and union territory of India.

NINEISMINE believes that while children set out to learn the principles embedded in the CRC, they would also be engaged in affecting national level changes as equal and active citizens TODAY.

With the involvement of children at, OHCHR (The Office of the United Nation High Commissioner), and at the UPR, (The Universal Periodic Review) process the NINEISMINE campaign brought in a very strong child-rights component to the campaign. Every four and a half years each member nation of the UN is subjected to an evaluation by other nations on its status in relation to Human Rights within its jurisdiction. India was up for its review in 2012 when the NINEISMINE campaign organized a children’s audit and submitted a child led report with the recommendations by children themselves. Three children nominated to represent the organization had the opportunity to interact with permanent mission in Geneva and place their demands which finally led to acceptance of their demands.

10 percent of the all recommendations of the 170 recommendation of the second cycle of the UPR for India came from intervention by children. With the next round UPR slated for 2017 the NINEISMINE campaign will engage children with the next round of evaluations and lobbying for their rights.
