Shoudn’t it be all year long?…
Children participating in the 2017 Universal Children’s Day celebration hold signs calling for peace. UNICEF invited children from around the world to take “take over” key roles in media, politics, business, sport and entertainment to voice their support for millions of their peers who are unschooled, unprotected and uprooted.

United Nations Universal Children’s Day was established in 1954 and is celebrated on November 20th each year to promote international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide, and improving children’s welfare.
November 20th is an important date as it is the date in 1959 when the UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child. It is also the date in 1989 when the UN General assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
This year the world is going blue! We want to build a world where every child is in school, safe from harm and can fulfil their potential, and we know you do too.
World Children’s Day – a day for children, by children – is almost here and we want you to take part.
Take this survey (it only takes you a few minutes):
22 students from 4 different countries will be with us soon (May 2nd- May 8th). We will be working on Human Rights, in regards to immigrants and refugees.

The CIMADE was present Wednesday March 21st and the students were congratulated for their exemplary behaviour and open mindedness!

The whole group of Spanish, French, Romanian, Italian and Greek students in Mondonedo – during a few hours of sun… Our partners in Spain are welcoming us under the rain and in the cold, but with a big heart and smiles all over their face. The region is beautiful, the food is good and most of all, the people are friendly and open minded. So are all these young students participating in this project!
