World Children’s Day celebrates children and also mobilizes children’s voices in support of child rights everywhere. The day also marks the anniversary of when the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) was adopted by the UN General Assembly. Somalia ratified the CRC in October 2015 and earlier this month there was the launch of the drafting process for a new Child Rights Bill.
