Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child
To mark the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, Arigatou International is preparing Faith and Children’s Rights: A Multi-religious Study on the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
This study examines the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) from the perspective of seven major religions, identifies the important role played by religious communities in advancing the rights and well-being of children over the past 30 years, seeks to identify the common values shared among different religions and the CRC and promotes continued action by religious communities to further implement the CRC in the future.
The full report on the results of the CRC Study will be released on November 20, 2019, the 30th anniversary of the adoption of the CRC. This is also the World Day of Prayer and Action for Children, an Arigatou International initiative.
Arigatou International presented a Preview of the CRC Study during the Kofi Annan Faith Briefing, a side event of the recent UN High Level Political Forum in New York on July 15 and we are pleased to share it:
