UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

Hi CADFA friends!

25 years ago, 20 of November 1989 governments worlwide promised all children the same rights  in UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The convention everybody knows with the name CRC and change the understanding of childen's rights, because they start to be seen legally as members of society .

These rights describe what a child needs to survive, grow, and live up to their potential in the world. They apply equally to every child, no matter who they are or where they come from. The Convention of the Rights of the Child is the most complete statement of children’s rights ever produced and is the most widely-ratified international human rights treaty in history. UK signed it in 1990, and it came into UK law in 1992.

Article 6.
1. States Parties recognize that every child has the ineherent right to life.
2. States Parties shall ensure to the maximum extent possible the survival and development of the child.

CADFA wants celebrate this important day with a big event, because we think the CRC is an internacional document to fight for the rights of the child and protect them around the world.

Emilio Sanchez.
