Plan's vision is of a world in which all children realise their full potential in societies that respect people's rights and dignity. Child Centred Community Development is a rights-based approach that translates this vision into the practice of international development.Piko Computing has been providing services to Plan Australia since 2008. Paul Piko has been involved in key infrastructure projects with them.
Children are at the heart of everything we do. Our work focuses on children who are living in poverty, children who are excluded and marginalised, and children affected by conflict and disasters.
Our work is guided by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, which spells out the human rights of all children. Listening to what children have to say about their rights and concerns is critical to our approach. We encourage them to take part in decisions that affect their lives, to speak out and have their voices heard.
We work from the perspective that all children hold equal rights so protecting children from discrimination – including gender discrimination – is a key principle of Child Centred Community Development. We’re committed to working for, with, and on behalf of children to claim their rights and to hold duty bearers, such as governments, to account to respect these rights. Plan Australia
My career in computing started with Shell Australia in 1984, and by 1990 I was working as a Systems Analyst. I left to consult through my company, Piko Computing Consultants, working on many projects for government and financial institutions. I am usually involved in the analysis, design, programming and implementation of projects. Since 2008 most of my time has been spent with the charity Plan International Australia, working on their installation of Blackbaud CRM. I have also recently been helping Deakin University customise and fine-tune Blackbaud CRM. I have been part of the development of a programming language for Microsoft .NET Framework, participated in user groups and spoken at numerous conferences.
