Children in Cibening Village
According to Convention on The Rights of the Children in 1989, the world made a promise to children that we would do everything in our power to protect and promote their rights to survive and thrive, to learn and grow, to make their voices heard and to reach their full potential. In spite of the overall gains, there are many children who have fallen even further behind. Old challenges have combined with new problems to deprive many children of their rights and the benefits of development. To meet these challenges, and to reach those children who are hardest to reach, we need new ways of thinking and new ways of doing – for adults and children.

It has been a decade after Goldteak had the second project at Cibening village. Seems time flies fast, we can see that teak trees grow as quickly as the children. The hill looks green and the children look healthy and happy. Not only the land and the children, the village is growing too, it has electricity, water, a new Mosque, a better Elementary School, a Kindergarten and a small health center for the children and the mothers. The children in Cibening village have a good place to study, a nice place to play and a safe place to grow up.
“We could never have loved the earth so well if we had had no childhood in it”
(George Elliot – The Mill on the Floss, 1860)
