On15 April 2014, the KidsRights Foundation and international law firm NautaDutilh signed a partnership agreement. For the next three years NautaDutilh will provide KidsRights with financial support, pro bono legal services and volunteer work.
Marc Dullaert, chairman and founder of KidsRights: "KidsRights is very proud that NautaDutilh has become its legal partner and that the organization is prepared to commit to us in this wonderful manner. We look forward to a successful partnership." KidsRights is a Dutch children's rights organization that promotes the position of very vulnerable children across the world. KidsRights advocates children's rights and finances successful local projects focusing on compliance with and promotion of children's rights. KidsRights believes that every child has the power to move the world.
"We, as an international law firm, endorse the mission of KidsRights", says Michaëla Ulrici, chairperson of NautaDutilh. "Our firm is involved with clients and society and wishes to make an active contribution, particularly in places where children have less access to their rights. KidsRights' activities match perfectly with that. We are very impressed with the impact of those activities and we are proud to be a KidsRights partner." In addition to the financial support and the legal services, NautaDutilh will contribute to KidsRights' objects by doing volunteer work. For example, NautaDutilh employees will be actively involved by giving guest lectures at Dutch primary schools on the KidsRights education kit.
