Children preparing to attend the upcoming 13th National Children’s Summit are asking that the meeting will prioritize matters to do with the violation of children’s rights so as to come up with lasting solutions.
About 580 children from different parts of the country are in preparations for this years' national children's summit set for the 20th of this month.
This meeting will bring together children representatives from different sectors in the country, those representing children with disabilities as well as children representatives from refugee camps.
Some of the children said that the meeting should focus more on the current challenges facing this generation.
According to the Executive Secretary of the National Commission for Children, Dr. Uwera Claudine KANYAMANZA, valuing children and looking out for their interests will help protect their Rights.
Also to be observed on the 20th of this month is the World Children’s Day, a day that saw the United Nations adopt the Convention on the Rights of the Child 30 years ago. Rwanda ratified this convention in 1991.
Rajat MADHOK, Chief of Communication, Advocacy, and Partnerships at UNICEF, said that children need to understand their rights at a young age.
The National Commission for Children says the theme of this year’s
children’s summit is the Role of Children in Positive Parenting.
