On 7 March 2010, we invite radio and television broadcasters to celebrate the ICDB and highlight programming by, for and about children.  The theme is “All Rights All Children.”

As the Convention of the Rights of the Child (CRC) marks its 20th anniversary, UNICEF highlights the rights that all children deserve.  Whether it is a quality education or a safe home, adequate food and drinking water or the ability to participate in society, children should get what they need to become strong members of society.
