In the 10th anniversary year of Giving Women, the Zurich Chapter of Giving Women invites you to an afterwork discussion
“Children’s Rights and how Save the Children contributes to enforce them”
Insights into the work of the leading independent Child Rights Organisation with a special focus on girls
6 November 2019, 18:30 to 20:30
Save the Children – Organisation für die Rechte der Kinder
First floor, meeting room “Future”
The UN Convention on Child Rights celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2019. But what exactly are Child Rights and what is their origin? What possibilities do we have to enforce them? And what are the approaches of Save the Children to do so? Please join us and participate with your input and questions to a lively discussion in the spirit of Giving Women.
Save the Children in Brief:
Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. In Switzerland and around the world, they give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. When crisis strikes, and children are most vulnerable, they are always among the first to respond and the last to leave. They ensure children’s unique needs are met and their voices are heard.
