Happy National Child’s Day

National Child Day is celebrated in Canada on November 20 in recognition of the UN Declaration on the Rights of the Child and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.  This video from the Ireland’s Children’s right alliance explains the basic rights that every child needs.

Kofi Annan
