Plans for the hosting of activities to commemorate International Child Rights Week from November 13 to 20th are well advanced.

That's according to officials at Rise St Lucia Inc who note that the weeklong campaign is taking place at a time when the world celebrates the rights of children as outlined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The campaign will lead up to universal children’s day  which is observed on 20th November - the day on which the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child in 1959

According to co founder of Rise Dr Jacqueline Bird, the UN General Assembly recommended that all countries observe November 20th annually as a day of activity devoted to promoting the welfare of children around the world.

During that week, RISE will be sharing information with the general public and school students on child rights in general, and specifically on Child Abuse and its prevention.

The subject of Child Right has been a tipoc of much debate with sections of the public expressing mixed views on whether or not child rights must be respected.

In addition to its Child Rights campaign, RISE will be joining the International Men’s Day fair at the RCI car park from 9am to 1pm on November 19th. Members of the public have been invited to attend the event
