STORYLINE:

Cheap labor. Obedient soldier. Child bride. Throughout history, children have been subjected to the worst forms of exploitation and abuse.

After World War II, the ground-breaking Universal Declaration of Human Rights declared that children needed “special care and protection.”

As a result, in 1989 the United Nations adopted a revolutionary treaty that gave rights to all children everywhere called the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

By signing the treaty, nations promise to set basic standards in health care, education, protection, and social services. They also grant children the right to play, to express themselves and to have a say in decisions that affect them.

But the convention has a grander vision – to change completely the way we see children, as people not with needs, but with rights.

As the global community commemorates the twentieth anniversary of the Convention, many challenges remain before all rights for all children are achieved.

Because of the world’s commitment over the past two decades, more children today are surviving, more are attending school, more have access to clean water, and more are being protected against deadly diseases.
