The movement is also aimed at creating a better environment where children can live, play and study for their good future.

Among the gifts that the movement is committed to deliver for children are: Local Development Plan for Children (LDPC); Local Investment Plan for Children (LIPC); Local Code on Children; and Local State of Children Report (LCSR).
