Celebrating 30 years of Child Rights
UNICEF Egypt celebrates the World Children’s Day by organizing an entertaining event for 100 children beneficiaries at Al Ahly Sporting Club
Cairo, Egypt - 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC @ 30). During the past 30 years, the convention became the most widely-ratified human rights treaty in history and helped transform children’s lives around the world by advocating for their rights and the changes needed to fulfill and protect them.
On this occasion, UNICEF Egypt in collaboration with Al Ahly Sporting Club seized the moment to advocate for Children’s rights through a joint event engaging players, board members, fans and children. Aliou Dieng and Ayman Ashraf, Al Ahly first team football players, participated in the event by playing a match with the children.
