SEHER observes the world day on the prevention of child abuse on November 19th in order to acknowledge the hardships of children throughout the world. Observance of this International day affirms the UN's commitment to protect the rights of children.
The Convention on the Rights of the Child is the first legally binding international instrument to incorporate the full range of human rights—civil, cultural, economic, political and social rights. In 1989, world leaders decided that children needed a special convention just for them because people under 18 years old often need special care and protection that adults do not. The leaders also wanted to make sure that the world recognized that children have human rights too.
Every year SEHER observes the day with zeal and enthusiasm and come up with new ideas in order to raise the issues at community and government level. Every year WWSF (World Women Summit Forum) selects a theme and circulated to the organizations all over the world. Acknowledging SEHER main stream work in the field of Child protection and the level of the enthusiasm during the activism WWSF awarded first prize among 116 organization of the world in 2006.
