Children have rights. We help them to claim them.
Children have the right to a self-determined life in dignity. But the majority of children worldwide still do not have access to adequate nutrition, medical care, welfare, education and participation.
Worldwide we are failing to realize children’s rights
Since 1989 the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child has been in force (in Germany it became law in 1992). The Convention has been transposed into national law by almost all governments. But in reality the situation of many children is still precarious today.
