Rights that matter the most to them
Children prioritize rights from the CRC during UNICEF Egypt’s celebration of the World Children’s Day
In this year’s celebration with the World Children’s Day, UNICEF Egypt organized a fun day at Al Ahly Sporting Club to make this day memorable to 100 children who attended the event.
These children were beneficiaries of UNICEF’s different interventions across the country. None of them was born thirty years ago when world leaders made a historic commitment to the world’s children by adopting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). Nevertheless, they had a take on these rights.
During the event, a group of children were given a set of cards with a child-friendly version of the most prominent rights in the Convention. They were asked to pick the rights that mattered the most to them.
Their rationale, comments and wishes were captured in this photo essay.
