On World Children’s Day, UNICEF reflects on impact of discrimination on children

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: World Children’s Day is celebrated on November 20 every year to promote international togetherness and awareness among children worldwide and to improve children’s welfare.

The theme of this year’s Children’s day is “Inclusion, for every child”.

Schools across the country are hosting activities to celebrate children.

On this year’s Children’s day, UNICEF is reflecting on the impacts of discrimination on children.

“All children everywhere have the right to a full childhood with dignity, respect and worth. The right to a childhood free from discrimination and exclusion is crucial to child well-being and accessing the services needed to survive and thrive,” UNICEF notes.

However, in many countries around the world, racism and discrimination against children based on their nationality, ethnicity, language religion and other grounds affect children.

“Systemic and institutional racism and discrimination prevent children from accessing their rights and puts them at risk of a lifetime of deprivation,” UNICEF added.

A U-report conducted by the United Nations revealed how discrimination affects children and how children are combatting discrimination.

The hope, vision and commitment of world leaders in 1989 led to the Convention on the Rights of the Child that has upheld child rights for over 30 years.

UNICEF is calling on governments, international partners, the private sector, and communities around the world to stand up for children everywhere – and commit to building a world free from discrimination, for every child.
