Video: I have the right!

On the 30th anniversary of the UNCRC, children around the world share their rights...

Every year on the 20th of November, the international community celebrates the ratification of the United Nations' Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). The UNCRC is the key worldwide document in protecting children’s rights including on non-discrimination of children along with protecting child interests and their rights to be heard. 2019 is a monumental year, as we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Convention. 

Promoting the voices of children is a key component of our work at ChildFund. Take a look at the video below, where we've asked children to share about their rights.
