Children in Ghana have a reason to celebrate this year as 2019 marks 30 years since the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

On 20 November 1989, world leaders made a promise to protect and fulfill the rights of child. Since then, the Convention on the Rights of the Child - or the CRC - has become the world's most ratified treaty. Ghana was the first country in the world to ratify the Treaty and is not only celebrating the progress made to fulfill the rights of children but calling stakeholders to work harder to reach children at risk of being left behind.
