On World Children’s Day, activations reached momentum when Constitution Hill’s Women’s Jail was lit in blue and the statue of a child was unveiled with a permanent home at this iconic space. World Children’s Day – celebrated on 20th November – is a global day of action ‘for children, by children’ to raise awareness and funds for the millions of children that are unschooled, unprotected and uprooted.

Securing children’s rights: UNICEF engages Religious and Traditional leaders

UNICEF South Africa/2018/Reddy



For the protection of children to be secured, there needs to be a widespread understanding among all sections of society for children to be at the centre of an understanding of human rights. It is for this reason that, since 2006, UNICEF has engaged with faith-based organisations globally to address violence against children. In South Africa, many religious institutions and traditional structures have a long history of fighting for social justice and continue to play a considerable role in influencing behavior change in South Africa.
