What We Do


We advance Child Honouring as a universal ethic, an essential code of conduct for all to embrace.

Child Honouring is a unifying vision by which societies can re-order their priorities- a central organizing principle for sustainable, peace-making cultures.

The Centre for Child Honouring—on Salt Spring Island, BC, Canada—is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to advancing Child Honouring as a universal ethic, an organizing principle for societal transformation.

Child Honouring is a unique social change revolution, one with the child at its heart. It is a positive vision that stresses “the primacy of early years” as key to activating the powerful potential of our species.

With local programs as well as national and international partners, our work is aligned with the UN Convention On the Rights Of The Child and with the Earth Charter: co-creating a world fit for children and, thus, sustainable for all.  

Respecting Earth and Child, Child Honouring is an integrated vision for simultaneously restoring our planet and building community. The heart of this vision is expressed in Raffi's poetic Covenant For Honouring Children and its 9 Principles.

If we follow Raffi’s Child Honouring philosophy toward a compassionate revolution, we can infuse honour and respect into every human institution.

Honorary Patron: The Honourable Iona Campagnolo, P.C., C.M., O.B.C.
