“The one thing all children have in common is their rights. Every child has the right to survive and thrive, to be educated, to be free from violence and abuse, to participate and to be heard.”— UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

On November 20th, 1959, the United Nations adopted the Declarations of the Rights of the Child, after having declared this day International Children’s Day in 1954. This day was established to encourage all countries to initiate action to benefit and promote the welfare of the world’s children. It was also chosen as an annual celebration of  childhood.

November 20, 1989, 192 countries in the United Nations General Assembly signed the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which defines rights of all children (defined as people under the age of 18), ranging from protection from abuse and exploitation, to the rights to education and health services, and the right to participate in decisions that affect their lives.

Datassist is celebrating International Children’s Day this week by focusing on children who are being denied their right to education. UNESCO has a wonderful interactive data visualization highlighting causes and solutions for these vital issues.
