The day recognizes children’s basic human rights and gives them additional rights to protecting them from harm—everything from a child’s right to be free from exploitation, to the right to his or her own opinion, and the rights to education, health care and economic opportunity.
The adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the creation of Universal Children’s Day reflects the growing recognition that children are important and valued members of society, now and in the future. Universal Children’s Day celebrates children just for being themselves. It reminds us that children need love and respect to grow to their full potential. It is a day to listen to children, to marvel at their uniqueness and all they have to offer.
A key objective of Universal Children’s Day is to increase awareness of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Since its adoption by the United Nations, the Convention has been signed or ratified by more countries than any other international treaty. Over the past decade, the Convention has proven to be a valuable tool for promoting the rights of children everywhere around the world.
Yeah, I’m sure they had a choice.
The article written by you very good, I like it very much. I will keep your new article.
Thanks! That’s a great tip.
Please let me express my deep concern on this page… I’m sure I’m going to track down many others to encourage me… Previous month I came back from a business trip to Sudan..what i spotted there was really terrible! I can for sure state that extensive human rights violations still occur in Africa, often under the oversight of the state! Many of these violations were due to the political lack of stability, being a ‘side effect’ associated with civil war. My personal plan is to let every one of the human rights institutions aware of that fact! Please, let as many of us as possible write to as many organizations as possible about such problems! This could change lives, I really believe!
