The CINI Method represents our commitment to a human rights-based approach (HRBA) that permeates all aspects of our interventions. This approach is integral to our capacity-building framework, influencing how we design and conduct all our training programmes. Our goal is to translate human and children's rights from theory into tangible practice, positively impacting the lives of children across various systems.
