Topic: The Voices of Children: Ending Violence and Exploitation Against Children
Passionate about protecting the rights of children around the world, Mark Lukowski has been Chief Executive Officer of Christian Children’s Fund of Canada since April 2009.
In this role, Mark has helped to amplify the voices of vulnerable children and promoted global change on children’s rights in national and international forums, including at the United Nations.
With a strong background of over 25 years of executive business leadership, Mark has led Christian Children’s Fund of Canada’s efforts to develop unique global alliances, and has advanced the organization’s vision of a world where every child has a voice and the ability to achieve their full potential.
Through his travels in Africa, Southeast Asia, Europe and the Americas, Mark has built the profile of the organization, encouraged a greater focus on child protection among national governments and pursued opportunities to increase the global impact of Christian Children’s Fund of Canada programs.
Mark is the former co-chair of the CEO Forum of ChildFund Alliance, a global network of 12 child development organizations which advocates with governments around the world to prevent and respond to all forms of violence and exploitation against children.
Mark is the father of two adult children, and currently lives in Oakville with his wife.
Christian's Children's Fund of Canada
A recent study by Christian Children’s Fund of Canada found that one in three children globally say adults are not doing enough to protect them from harm. Every day, children are subjected to violence and exploitation, such as forced early marriage, forced labour or trafficking, leaving communities around the world desperate for a solution.
