ON Monday, November 20, the world will mark the World Children’s Day to commemorate the anniversary this year. Children across the world will ‘takeover’ high-profile moments in the media, politics, business, sports, music and entertainment to raise awareness on the most vulnerable and hardest to reach children.
Children will raise their voices in solidarity with the world’s most disadvantaged children. They will shine a spotlight on the most pressing challenges faced by their generation. A statement by UNICEF Nigeria said more than anything else on this day, they seek support to make this an advocacy moment for children’s right by children themselves. The day was set aside by the United Nations as the anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
UNICEF said children in Nigeria will ‘takeover’ prominent places in the country such as Hilton Hotel, presentation by a Nigerian child at the Ted talk-like Regional African Dialogue in Accra Ghana and children’s visit to Fifth Chukker Polo and Country Club and takeover of management and games at the Club.
