Fund The Child

Kids First Parent Association of Canada assumes no responsibility for the content and positions of these Fund the Child links. We are a very broad movement linking those who are very diverse in class, culture, lifestyle, politics, and world-view. These links are meant to facilitate cyber-networking amongst those who share this basic goal: that funding for children’s care “follow the child” and be provided directly to parents.

The Fund the Child Coalition Canada-Wide Event for International Children’s Day was held on Nov 19-21. Read about our formal Complaint to the United Nations.
