The Convention on the Rights Of The Child has also enabled more children to have their voices heard and participate in their societies.

The following provides the framework of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, including Article, the rights and the meaning in child-friendly language. 

 

 

Rights” are things every child should have or be able to do. All children have the same rights. These rights are listed in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Almost every country has agreed to these rights. All the rights are connected to each other, and all are equally important. As children grow, they have more responsibility to make choices and exercise their rights.
