On November 20 the world celebrates World Children’s Day. This is also the day when UN convention on Child Rights was adopted! In 2018, to mark World Children's Day in Armenia special discussion was held in Tumo Creative Center, where children voiced the issues they are concerned with.

Children were joined by the President of Armenia Sarkissian, UNICEF Representative Tanja Radocaj, VivaCell-MTS General Manager Yirikian, Director of Synopsys Armenia Musayelyan, Acting Minister of Education and Science Harutyunyan and many other guests to discuss with possible solutions to their problems.

Anna talks about how children are affected by poverty and what adults needs to do end poverty for every child.

"Suppose we have a financially stable family in our Aragatsotn region and one of their children wants to learn to play the piano, but there are no such classes available in their community, or any other nearby settlements. This means that this child is growing up in multidimensional poverty."
