World Children’s Rights Day is celebrated on November 20 every year. The date chosen coincides with the day when the UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child, in 1959, and the Convention on the Rights of the Child, in 1989.
The intent of this day is to spread awareness of the rights of children and adolescents.
The Convention on the Rights of the Child was signed by the United Nations General Assembly and introduced a new vision of girls and boys: no longer as objects of care, but as subjects of law.
These documents are the basis of our work in education.
In fact, our action is based on the four fundamental principles of the Convention on the Rights of the Child: non-discrimination; higher interest; right to life; listening to the views of the child.
The Community Foundation has made education one of the main areas of its intervention for local development, promoting and participating in important national and international projects.
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted inequalities even more, especially in an area already marked by various fragilities like ours: climate change, education and mental health, discrimination.
Children and young people are raising their voices on the issues affecting their generation and calling on adults to create a better future.
The Community Foundation has decided to listen them and put themselves at their service.
Our actions and activities in the educational field are meant to be tools for the community and for young people to activate processes of change and inclusion.
The goal is to do it with them and not for them, involving people and organizations who want to give their contribution.
The activities that we carry out through the projects have the aim of promoting awareness and development of skills, providing young people tools that can allow them to make changes for themselves, for their peers and for the community.
