This is a day for children, by children, all over the world to help save children’s lives, fight for their rights and help them fulfil their potential


Be fair - for a childhood without barriers 

The campaign is to mobilize public awareness and support for the rights and inclusion of children with disabilities. It is being implemented as part of the EU funded and UNICEF co-funded Regional Project “Protecting Children from violence and promoting social inclusion of children with disabilities in Western Balkans and Turkey”.

Early Moments Matter ECD campaign

UNICEF launched #EarlyMomentsMatter, a new campaign supported by the LEGO Foundation to drive increased awareness about the importance of the first 1,000 days of a child’s life and the impact of early experiences on the developing brain. During this critical window of opportunity, brain cells can make up to 1,000 new connections every second – a once-in-a-lifetime speed. These connections contribute to children’s brain function and learning, and lay the foundation for their future health and happiness.

UNICEF #FightUnfair campaign

UNICEF and activists launched a local “Fight Unfair” campaign to spur action to change the way society sees and treats children with disabilities. Stigma, attitudes and lack of awareness contribute to the discrimination and exclusion that children with disabilities face.
