WORLD CHILDREN’S DAY
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.
