Leo Semashko. Children's Priority Project purposes and strategy

International project:

Global Movement “Making Children a Priority in the World”

The Project beginning: 2006




For an Information Age, our initiative places a priority o­n development of children and the sphere of childhood, following the advice of Dimitry Mendeleyev, Janusz Korczak, Mahatma Gandhi, Nobel Peace Laureates and other recognized thinkers. Children’s priority rejects violent means of societal transformation. Children’s priority is possible o­nly through legislation, first of all through adoption of "Children’s Suffrage Executed by Parents," legislated by each country in keeping with its culture and customs. But such laws can be accepted o­nly following civic pressure, as a result of national and global awareness. For this purpose, a global movement "Making Children a Priority in the World" is formed. Its social base will probably be young parents, especially mothers bearing the primary responsibility for care of their children. Women, therefore, are expected to provide the leadership for this movement and initiative.



The main objective of this initiative is the formation of a global movement "Making Children a Priority in the World." The task of creating a children’s priority is complex, difficult, and long-term, not achievable in o­ne decade in all the different countries. It can be accomplished o­nly by constant efforts involving complementary national movements. Therefore, the strategy of this initiative is to introduce the idea of children’s priority to organizations and citizens in the different countries and encourage their association with the global movement. The initial strategies have included organization of our international website and letters from our website members to their respective national leaders with the appeal "Making Children a Priority." The objectives and strategies of the initiative were decided in collective discussion o­n our website during the year 2005.



The first direction of our strategy in 2006 will the expansion of our letters to the leaders of the countries with an appeal "Making children a priority", which a beginning have put the letters Hilarie Roseman, Rose Lord, Leo Semashko, Bernard Scott, Ada Aharoni, Maitreyee Bardhan Roy, Subir Bardhan Roy. I invite other co-authors of our site to take part in this campaign and to direct the appropriate letters to the leaders of your countries. Now similar letters are capable to prepare or prepare: Araken Barbosa and Lia Diskin in Brasil, Reimon Bachika, in Japan, Maria Cristina Azcona, Ramakrishna Singh and Ananta Giri in India, Takis Ioannides in Greece, Will Hoonaard in Canada, Kerry Bowden in Australia, Bernd Hornung in Germany, Mona al Dina and Guy Crequie in France, Renato Corsetti in Italy, Tarek Haggy in Egypt, Rudolf Siebert, Bernard Phillips in USA and other co-authors of our site. In Russia its are capable to make: Abram Jusfin, Vladimir Kavtorin, Dimitry Ivashintsov, Alexander Yuriev, Gregory Toulchinsky,Nina Litvinova, Anastasia Dolgosheva, Genrich Skvortsov and many other Russian co-authors of the site. Participation in this campaign will make you by the pioneers of a new Global movement, which will harmonize the world and create a peace culture preventing wars, terror and poverty.


The second direction of our strategy is the participation in competition of the projects o­n the Dubai International Award in 30 thousand dollars, and also participation in other competitions, International congresses etc.


The third direction of our strategy is the search of an authoritative leader for the Global movement "Making children a priority in the world", which could lift its o­n the higher international level.


The fourth direction of our strategy is an expansion of the international contacts and joining of the new nongovernmental organizations of the world, first of all of children's orientation, to the Global movement "Making children a priority in the world".


The fifth direction of our strategy is a development of the International and Multicultural Website "A New Culture of Peace from Social Harmony and Children’s Priority" (www.peacefromharmony.org ) as the crucial information tool and resource for the Global movement "Making children a priority in the world".


The offers for specification of the project purposes and strategy are welcomed.
