The challenge is to make sure that child rights are disseminated in every corners in all possible ways,” says Ruth Leano, (Chief Field Office) a from UNICEF.

“Calling attention through capturing the childhood photographs is one way to spread awareness to those who must know the face of life and take action towards the same,” she added.

“The Convention on the Rights of the Child is the most rapidly and widely ratified international human rights treaty in history,” says Prosun Sen, advocacy and communication specialist, UNICEF.

“It has changed the way children are viewed and treated. They are now seen as human beings with a distinct set of rights instead of mere passive objects of care and charity. One such example can be the National Policy drafted in 2013 shows a clear difference in the change of the attitude towards children and their rights,” he added.
