Vision and Mission

A better world where the dreams of children come true.

Using the dreams of children as a driving force, ERIKS wants to be part of making the world a better place. Through interventions in the sectors of education, health and protection, we give children and young people around the world opportunity to dream about the future. We want every child to be seen and be taken seriously.

Our Mission

To reduce poverty and vulnerability by promoting the rights of the child.
ERIKS is a child rights organization. Based on the Convention on the Rights of the Child, we fight for children living in poverty and vulnerability and their chances of a better life, now and in the future.

Our work is mainly directed towards vulnerable children in developing countries. Together with local implementing partners, we run about one hundred projects in over 20 countries around the world. Our focus is the rights of the child to education, health and protection.

Sweden is still an important arena for our work. Here we support children in socially disadvantaged environments. And the concept of our founder, Erik Nilsson, to encourage children in hospital, lives on.
