Over 20 organisations for takeover by children

As the World Children’s Day (WCD) gets underway on Monday, 20 November, 2017, Nigerian children are not left out as there is advanced plans for them to take over in excess of 20 organisations in commemoration of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, reports ITRealms.

Confirming this to ITRealms, the Communication Specialist at the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) in Nigeria, Mr. Geoffrey Njoku, said that 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. 

According to him, children would use the opportunity to raise their voices in solidarity with the world’s most disadvantaged children.

In addition, they would shine a spotlight on the most pressing challenges faced by their generation.
“More than anything else on this day, we seek your support to make this an advocacy moment for children’s right by children themselves,” he said.
