Round and round the Globe

Since 2019, millions of children have trekked over five million kilometers Round the Globe for rights and change.

In Zimbabwe, WCP Child Rights Ambassadors Kim and Hassan organized the Round the Globe trek in their village and school, Hurungwe Primary School in Murehwa. Kim said that it felt nice to know that they in Murewa were joining many children in many countries.
   "We were all showing our support at the same time for children's rights and the Global Goals. We must all get involved in changing our countries and we must change a lot, both in Zimbabwe and around the world.”

Watch and be inspired!

Children in the city of Bunia in DR Congo march together during their trek Round the Globe

Well prepared

In participating countries, children made posters where they highlighted their most important issues. Peace and Justice, is what it said on most of the posters when schools in the city of Bunia in DR Congo marched together. It’s hardly surprising that the children want to see peace and justice in a country where several armed groups have been fighting since 1998, and where many children have been killed or forced to become child soldiers.

Round the Globe in Mozambique.

“For me, Round the Globe shows society that we children demand to be able to live in a peaceful world where there is no violence, and where children are not taken advantage of. We demand an end to the sexual exploitation of girls, and we are showing that we young people want to achieve something when we participate, says Aline, 13, from Mozambique.
