The 2017 edition of International Children’s Day, which was celebrated in the Principality with a concert by Kids United at the Grimaldi Forum on November 24, continues to raise awareness during the Monaco Christmas Market.
An initiative organised by the Department of Education, Youth and Sport, a dedicated stand for Children’s Rights can be found this year at the marché de Noël in Port Hercule.
Decorative objects made by local elementary school students, as well as Monegasque biscuits and fougasses baked by students of the Lycée Technique et Hôtelier de Monaco, will be on sale at the booth from December 6 to 19.
Proceeds from the sale, along with €8000 already raised at the Kids United concert, will go to the Princess Charlene Foundation “Learn to Swim” program, as well as 11 other Monegasque partner associations that intervene for the protection of children worldwide.
The stand is open daily from 11 am to 10 pm. Visitors will be welcomed by a team from the Prince Albert II Youth Centre and representatives from partner associations, school teachers and volunteers in Monaco.
