ABSTRACT

The State of the World's Children 2005 makes clear that for nearly half of the two billion children in the world, childhood is starkly and brutally different from the ideal we all aspire to. Poverty denies children their dignity, endangers their lives and limits their potential. Conflict and violence rob them of a secure family life and betrays their trust and hope. With the childhood of so many under threat, our collective future is compromised. Only as we move closer to realising the rights of all children will countries move closer to their goals of development and peace.
