As November 20 is the day, UN Security Council passed the convention on the Rights of Children (CRC), hence November 20 is observed as International Children’s Day across the globe. Facts, Data and ground situation proves that, irrespective of the Heads of state signing the CRC, They either not promulgated the required legislation and institutions or weak or not Implementation on existing laws.
Analysis shows that in each passing year, children, witnessed more violence, abuse, discrimination and neglect. Hence civil society organization at National Level conceived the idea of having full year (Nov 20th 2008 to Nov 20th2009) campaign on Right and Protection of Children. SEHER being leading Organization in the Province, joined hands with National coalition and launched 20 to 20 campaign in Balochistan.
20 to 20 campaign focused a huge number of cards signed by the children, having demand from children about their rights, and submitted it to the Prime Minister. On the other hand children’s Dialogue must be conducted with MNAs, MPAs, Senators and Ministers. Dialogue must reflect the miserable condition of the children and demand for “child protection bill/policy” enactment. Campaign was simultaneously launched in 5 districts.
