As part of this commemoration, UNICEF South Africa will join our offices and partners around the world by participating in a literary campaign, initiated by UNICEF Finland called ‘Tiny Stories’. Aiming at increasing awareness of children’s rights and needs, UNICEF South Africa chose three authors to write a ‘tiny’ story of just seven lines under the theme ‘What I want for every child’.
