About Us

Pikin-To-Pikin Movement is a Child Centered Community Development Non Governmental Organisation that was established in 1994. It is a Sierra Leonean based NGO. The mandate of the organization is child protection. Pikin-to-Pikin Movement was formed by a group of young men and women when Sierra Leone was engulfed by a devastating rebel war. During the war, the rights of children were grossly violated. Many children were forcefully conscribed into the fighting forces-the national army, the rebel forces or the civil militia. As a result, these children missed out on education. Many children also died because of preventable childhood diseases such as diarrhea diseases. The situation in Sierra Leone for many years was such that there was very little protection for children. It was in a bid to salvage the situation of the children of this nation that Pikin-to-Pikin Movement was formed primarily to strive for an enabling environment for the survival, development, protection and participation of children.
