Children and young people have special rights. These rights are laid down in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child - from the right to education to the right to protection from violence and the right to health.
Recognising and living children's rights is an important part of our work. To ensure that children's rights do not exist only on paper, SOS Children's Villages is committed to ensuring that everyone is aware of children's rights and works to ensure that they are respected - both inside and outside SOS Children's Villages, from children and young people to parents, educators and politicians.
We bring children's rights closer to schoolchildren. We use concrete examples to explain how children's rights are violated every day and show what rights children have.
Furthermore, the children learn more about the work of SOS Children's Villages and what we do for children's rights worldwide.
