Maestral International’s mission is to provide cutting-edge, relevant and effective technical expertise that helps communities and nations to protect children from violence, abuse, exploitation and neglect, while ensuring that all of their children are cared for in safe and appropriate family or alternative care settings. We envision a world where every child is able to reach his or her full potential. Working with a wide range of partners, we join forces to promote the achievement of all children’s best interests.
Identifying national level opportunities to improve outcomes for vulnerable children and families by promoting and facilitating policy dialogue and change.
Mapping and assessing national, regional and local child protection systems, and identifying actions and programs required to improve child welfare and protection.
Advancing understanding of what works through effective monitoring and evaluation, dissemination of lessons learned, and research and evidence-building.
Facilitating networks of organizations, policymakers, public and private agencies, and regional and global organizations to join forces to support a common vision for change.
“A hundred children, a hundred individuals who are people—not people-to-be, not people of tomorrow, but people now, right now—today.”
