Under the Patronage Prince Albert, the Principality every year celebrates 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.

Pupils of CM2 classes, ages ten and elevent, on Friday, November 24, had the honour of meeting Presidents of various Monegasque humanitarian associations that are partners in the marking of the International Day of the Rights of the Child.

Action Innocence, Amade Monaco, Casa Do Menor, Child CARE Monaco, Children & Future, Digital Aid, Les Enfants de Frankie, Interactions & Solidarity, Mission Childhood, Support Volunteering, and Walking For Kids each presented their missions to help the children of the world whose fundamental rights are not respected.

Monaco resident Nick Danziger, the well-known British photographer and director of numerous documentaries on the Rights of the Child, meets fourth grade students from November 21 to 27, in outreach workshops in French and English.
