Néstor Rivoira

Regional Representative for Americas & Caribbean

I was inspired to become a board member of Child Helpline International seeing the level of commitment and hard work of the staff of Child Helpline International towards the rights of children.

As a Regional Representative I aim to strengthen the network of Child Helplines in the Americas and the Caribbean, working in partnership and alignment with the members of the region, so that more voices of children in the Americas can be heard every day.

Néstor began working on the issue of childhood and adolescence in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina since 1992. In 2003 he established a Professional Technical Team for the prevention of the institutionalization of children and adolescents. This team was created to implement the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Since 2009 as a coordinator of Line 102, he has been working actively for the inclusion of the Federal Network of Lines of Infantile Support in Argentina. His commitment to promote and protect the rights of children and adolescents extends beyond the provincial level, at the national and international levels allowing him to implement public policy actions in accordance with national requirements and the Regulations of the Committee of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
