World Children’s Day, held on November 20th each year, celebrates the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). This year, 2019, marks thirty years since the convention was introduced in 1989, and SEA Junction would like to mark the occasion on Saturday, November 23rd, with children’s activities, international youth performances, and a panel discussion focusing on refugee children and their right to play and education.
To stress the importance of more inclusive policies and interventions for refugee children SEA Junction together with concerned individual and institutional partners held a range of activities. A food and craft bazaar were organized for refugee and rights organizations to profile their products and raise some funds. Creative activities for children was also organized including making together a mural painting on the theme and henna painting.
