Nobody is allowed to exploit children.

The child should be able to have control over his/her own body and mind.

If a child is being maltreated, he or she should be able to find help and support.Trafficking and child marriages are examples of practices that ERIKS is combatting. Children should be protected from hazardous work and occupations that prevent them from attending school. Children have the right to feel secure and as far as possible grow up in a family environment.
