As part of the 2017 celebration of the International Day of the Rights of the Child, a concert by Kids United took place on Friday, November 24, at the Grimaldi Forum, in the presence of Prince Albert.
This sold-out concert was held in a particularly warm atmosphere and the exceptional performance was preceded by a series of numbers played by the Carabiniers’ Orchestra and the broadcast of a film on the Rights of the Child.
The students of the Theatre Option of Lycée Albert 1er also took part in public awareness activities in the lobby of the Grimaldi Forum.
This event will provide €8,000 to the Princess Charlene Foundation for its “Learn to Swim” programme and to Monegasque humanitarian associations working to make Children’s Rights better respected around the world.
The Department of National Education, Youth and Sports organises every year, under the patronage of HSH Prince Albert, a celebration of the anniversary of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child, adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations on November 20, 1989.
