WORLD CHIL­DREN’S DAY

First News - - Special Report -

WORLD Chil­dren’s Day is held ev­ery year on 20 Novem­ber to pro­mote the rights of chil­dren and help im­prove the lives of dis­ad­van­taged chil­dren across the world. The day marks the an­niver­sary of the date that the United Na­tions signed the Con­ven­tion on the Rights of the Child – an agree­ment which aims to en­sure that ev­ery child, even those who are caught up in war, are prop­erly looked af­ter and helped.

Here at First News we are sup­port­ing Out­Right, UNICEF UK’s an­nual schools cam­paign that em­pow­ers young peo­ple to speak out about chil­dren’s rights on World Chil­dren’s Day. This year’s Out­Right cam­paign will fo­cus on the rights of refugee chil­dren like Na­bila, who is now en­joy­ing her new life in the UK af­ter es­cap­ing vi­o­lence in Syria.
