Launch of the Child Rights Advocacy Programme and National Consultation on the Convention of the Rights of the Child

UNICEF in partnership with the National Forum for Child Rights (the Ministry of Social Affairs, Childhood and Family; the Ministry of Youth and Culture; the Imams Network; and national NGOs) are planning to launch a comprehensive child rights advocacy programme focusing on the World Day of Prayer and Action for Children, to promote the survival, development, protection and wellbeing of children. A national consultation on the State Party Periodic Report on the Convention on the Rights of the Child will be organized, and on 22 November, the Friday Prayers in all the mosques around the country will focus on children’s rights and more specifically on the rights of the girl- child.
