The Raffi Foundation for Child Honouring is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to advancing Child Honouring as a universal ethic, an organizing principle for societal transformation.
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.
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 for lifetimes of positive outcomes.
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.
Singer, songwriter, ecology advocate, entrepreneur, author, and above all else, children’s champion. Raffi, the man who brought music to millions of children and now delights their own children.
His string of gold and platinum-selling recordings in North America — including his beloved “Baby Beluga” song — speak for themselves. But at the root of the Raffi story is a pioneering commitment to respect his young fans, a commitment that blossomed into an overarching belief that children who are respected and loved grow into loving, caring adults who, in turn, can help create a more caring world.
