ISSA is proud to have become a member of the Global Coalition Against Child Poverty joining together with an array of likeminded organzations to keep this issue within the global agenda and the national development policies and priorities of many countries.


In a joint statement to European Heads of State, ISSA joins 58 leading organisations in the fields of human rights, child rights, health and social inclusion, including UNICEF, OHCHR to remind them that it is their responsibility and duty to respect, protect and fulfil the rights of every child.


October 17th marks International Day for the Eradication of Poverty and the central theme for 2015 is coming together to end poverty and discrimination.


On this international day celebrating the work of the world’s teachers, ISSA restates its commitment to strengthening early childhood development by launching a new initiative aimed at empowering the workforce in early years services. More details coming soon.
