All children have the right to grow up safe, happy and healthy, no matter who they are, where they live or what they believe in. 

You can find out all about your rights as a young person in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Despite these rights, children across the world still suffer the consequences of adult decisions and face problems like child trafficking and food shortages. UNICEF works to protect and promote child rights, and you can too. 

You can help us reach out to all the world’s children and raise donations by following these links:

Show your support for child rights, raise donations and change the world for children everywhere.
