GLOBAL SURVEY: Children say what child rights mean to them

The ChildFund Alliance conducted a global research project to understand better what children think of their rights. Children aged 10-12 from 44 different countries were surveyed about their own views. The report called 'Small Voices, Big Dreams' reveals that one in three of the world’s children say children’s rights to protection are still not being met. In developing countries, 28% of children surveyed say children in their country are rarely or never protected from harmful work that is detrimental to their health and education. Disturbing too is that only 11% of children globally say they can give an opinion and adults will always take it seriously all of the time. In some countries, up to 70% of children say children are denied the right to attend school.
