Children’s rights are our present and our future. Violating them is like erasing colors from the world. Preserving the right to be a child means protecting small hands that will draw thousands of colors and incredible adventures.
However, there are millions of children who suffer in the world: this is why we must defend children from any form of injustice.
November 20th is the World Children’s Rights Day. On this date we should remember that children have the same rights as adults; among these rights: no discrimination, best interest on the child, protection from kidnapping, name and nationality, identity, respect for children’s view, protection for violence, the right to have a family, to education, to health, water, food and environment, protection from harmful work, the right to play and so on… These rights were recognized by the UN in the International Convention on the Rights of the Child. This is a day to take awareness that the fight to protect the little ones can never be considered over. We can and must do the best to protect these rights. So it’s time to pitch in!
