Who we are

About Us

Hintalovon Child Rights Foundation was established in 2015 by dr Szilvia Gyurkó, a lawyer specialized on children’s rights. In 2018 there are 7 payed and about 80 voluntary contributors to the activities of the Foundation.

The mission of the Foundation is to contribute to the fullest possible realization of children’s rights in Hungary. We believe that given appropriate information and support children are competent in their own lives. Other than emergency situations there is no reason to decide about them without them.

Child participation is a major principle and practice at the Foundation. Children aged 14-18 contribute with their opinion and support to all activities of the Foundation: from the conception of an idea to the full realization and evaluation of it.

All activities of the Foundation are headed by experts with ample experience of working in a child-centred way.
