Children’s Rights

Safety And Security

Every child should have the right to education and the opportunity to grow up in a safe and secure, and healthy environment, with positive role-models to look up to in the shape of their parents, guardians, siblings, teachers or mentors. In 1989, the United Nations adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the most widely-ratified international human rights treaty in history. The vision of the Convention is to offer the rights and responsibilities to each child appropriate to his or her age to enable them to reach their full potential.

The ability of a nation to innovate and grow is directly related to the health, education and productivity of their youth. With so many children at risk, progress with the Sustainable Development Goals is threatened unless action is taken to break the vicious cycle of poverty and social exclusion that is the reality for so many families in developing countries.
