Give kids the right to decide

“Before, I didn’t know what the rights of the child were. Now that I know all about them, I want to teach adults about them so that they respect our rights.

I learned about the rights of the child through The Globe and the WCP program. It is good for everyone, and teaches many people about children’s rights. We had meetings to decide who should do what on Global Vote Day, and we made it happen together. Adults here often force children to do work that is not suitable for children. When I grow up I will give children the right to decide for themselves.”
