The Higher Council for Childhood is the national framework for collaborative work between several Lebanese ministries, non-governmental organizations, and the public sector.

The Council operates in compliance with international conventions – specifically the Convention on the Rights of the Child – and in collaboration with international organizations specialized in child care and development.

According to its website, “The Council seeks to implement the general principles of children’s rights in order to improve the situation of children in Lebanon and ensure their rights to survival, development and protection.”

HKCC Lebanon is active member in the Council, and regularly participates in its meetings.
