Child rights encompass the fundamental entitlements and protections guaranteed to all children to ensure their well-being, safety, and development. Rooted in international agreements like the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), child rights advocate for a child-centered approach that acknowledges their inherent dignity and fosters their physical, emotional, and intellectual growth.
These rights include, but are not limited to:
Right to Survival: Ensuring access to adequate nutrition, healthcare, and shelter to survive and thrive.
Right to Protection: Protection from abuse, exploitation, neglect, and all forms of violence.
Right to Development: Access to education, play, cultural activities, and opportunities for social and cognitive development.
Right to Participation: Encouraging children to express their opinions, be heard, and participate in decisions affecting their lives.
Right to Non-Discrimination: Every child has the right to equal opportunities and treatment regardless of race, gender, religion, or any other status.
Upholding these rights demands the collaboration of development partners, governments, communities, families, and organizations to create environments where children can grow up in safety and security, where their voices are heard and their best interests are prioritized. Protecting and advocating for child rights is a key focus of GOALPrime Organization Nigeria, we tailor bespoke interventions with the aid of development partners in creating a world where every child can fulfill their potential and live a life free from harm and inequality.Take Action
