A video message about children’s rights:

I Have the Right to Be a Child

Please take a moment to watch the book trailer for I Have the Right to Be a Child, a gorgeously illustrated picture book that introduces young children to the concept of human rights, and more specifically to their rights as children, as set out in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. This moving video was created by our talented Marketing Manager Fred Horler and stars his daughter Zoe.
