CNDHC recognises that there are still significant challenges in the effective implementation of children’s rights

Praia, Dec 6 (Inforpress) – The president of the National Commission for Human Rights and Citizenship (CNDHC), Eurídice Mascarenhas, recognised that there are still significant challenges in the effective implementation of children’s rights.

The official, who was speaking at the swearing-in ceremony for the Children’s Rights Ambassadors, organised by Acrides, stressed that the gains are visible and the challenges still require answers, such as equal opportunities in all municipalities, accessibility for children with special needs, as well as strengthening parental responsibility.

“Despite significant progress since the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989, there are still current challenges that affect the effective implementation and protection of children’s rights around the world,” said Eurídice Mascarenhas.

“Some of these challenges include poverty and inequality, violence and abuse, access to education, health and well-being, migration and refuge, exploitation and child labour,” she said.

In this regard, he pointed out that awareness-raising, as well as government action and international collaboration, are fundamental to tackling these challenges and ensuring that all children can fully enjoy their rights.
