Annual Children's Rights Debate
Thu, Nov 17. 10:30AM - 2:30PM
Kitante Primary School Kira Road Kampala, Uganda
“The Children’s Parliament” which we operate with several schools to empower and put children at the fore front to champion the protection and promotion of their rights through which we intend to celebrate the Universal Children’s day which is celebrated internationally every year.
Universal Children's Day aims to create a day of international fraternity and understanding between children all over the globe. The secondary purpose is to promote the objectives and ideals of the Declaration of the Rights of the Child and the Convention on the Rights of the Child through activities and awareness. Children are the future of the planet but they are a vulnerable group exposed to abuse and exploitation on a daily basis. As young dependents, children rely on adults for everything from food to shelter to education and it is imperative that their rights be heard if they are to survive and develop into the next generation of world citizens.
Universal Children's Day was declared on in 1954 by the United Nations General Assembly as a day to be celebrated on November 20, the anniversaries of the Declaration of the Rights of the Child and the Convention on the Rights of the Child, both of which protect the human rights of children.
In commemoration, we have organized the Annual Children’s rights debate
