In state governance, it is important to value and involve the community and to listen to its views. Everyone should feel that the development of the country depends on their contribution as well. Children and young people are without a doubt the key to Estonia's future. We have two huge tasks to undertake in order to support children and give families a stronger sense of security. More children must be born in Estonia, so that the Republic of Estonia and life in our countryside have a deeper meaning. We must also make every effort to ensure that no child grows up in poverty. Children and young people must be provided a sound foundation so that they could find competitive employment in the future, be motivated and proactive.
