The key priority areas are social protection, education and health care and our activities are focusing in 3 directions:
• Advocacy work: Network cooperates with policy makers and other public institutions to advocate for evidence based policy and practices and improvement of overall situation of children and families in Latvia. Raising of Public awareness: Network in cooperation with professionals from various fields and
sectors identifies gaps and challenges, affecting children wellbeing. Through seminars, expert discussions, interviews & articles in the media and webinars Network raises awareness and initiates public discussion on the topics, relevant for children, families and young people.
• Strengthening Network's capacity: Network works with NGO’ s and experts from various fields to ensure cross-sectoral collaboration and expertise in the areas, relevant for well-being of children and families. Network builds national and international partnerships, e.g. on EU level as national

Who I am Use of CTB
I am a substitute teacher/bus driver, musician, former assistant pastor, but most importantly I am a family man. What excites me is to see people doing well in life by finding out their God-given purpose and fulfilling it. I hate to see generations of people living in poverty. It is not always about the environment as it is about mindset. I would like to spend more time learning 2 things; How to become a producer( providing goods and services to benefit my city). and how to seize opportunities
In the end, I want to leave a legacy for my grandchildren to live by.
