Support the 1.1 Million Children Campaign in Hong KongPublished on 27 Dec 2012 in Campaigns, Children & Youth, Featured Article, News by author
Hong Kong has 1,100,000 children population under the age of 18. However, children are rarely consulted on matters related to them. Children are not voters; their voice is often ignored by the community; their interests are rarely represented in the government and institutions as a consequence.
In this regard, the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child has highlighted the importance of setting up an independent statutory body like a Children’s Commission to take care of the interests of all children especially those who are marginalized and in vulnerable situations.
The 1.1 Million Children’s Campaign aims to gather support for the establishment of a Children’s Commission in Hong Kong.
Please support this campaign this 2013.
