November 20th is an important date as it is the date in 1959 when the UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child and in 1989 the Convention on the Rights of the Child, 2 great milestones in history.
To celebrate this year's Universal Children’s Day, UNICEF has invited children from all over the globe to take over key positions in entertainment, business, politics, sport and business to voice their support for millions of their peers who are unschooled, unprotected and uprooted on 20th Novembe
“From Auckland to Amman and from New York to N’Djamena, we want children to campaign in their schools and communities to help save children’s lives, fight for their rights and fulfil their potential,” said Justin Forsyth UNICEF Deputy Executive Director. “World Children’s Day will be a day for children, by children.”
