The Israel National Council for the Child (NCC), an independent non-governmental organization, stands as Israel's foremost advocate for all children's rights and well-being.
Since 1980, the NCC has sought to advance children’s rights and promote and protect the well-being of all children in Israel, age birth to 18, regardless of ethnicity, religious affiliation, or social-economic status.
The NCC serves as a nationwide address for anyone wishing to report violations of children’s rights; we provide support and services to children in distress; we successfully influence public policy and raise public awareness of children’s rights and issues affecting their welfare and wellbeing; we initiate innovative projects addressing complex problems at home, at school, and in the community. Whenever and wherever Israel’s children need us, the NCC is there.
The distinctiveness of the NCC is marked by its combination of activities on behalf of individual children and finding solutions for concrete problems, and those activities on a macro level that deal with fundamental issues in a manner that improves the rights and well-being of thousands of children in Israel.
Dealing with an enormous spectrum of issues including education, health, children at risk, abuse, delinquency, legislation, media and consumerism, the NCC has succeeded in making real changes in the lives of hundreds of thousands of children of all walks of life.
The NCC diligently and courageously speaks out for the children. To retain our independence, objectivity, and freedom to act in defense of children under all circumstances, we do not accept government funding. The NCC depends on the generosity of foundations, businesses, and individuals around the world who are concerned with the welfare of Israel’s children.
