Bamyan made headlines back in 2001 when the Taliban destroyed the ancient Bamyan Buddha statues that had been etched into mountainsides. For more than 1,500 years, pilgrims from across Asia had set up camp near the Buddha statues and the huge caves beneath them. Now, only the c...

Findings were presented at the Day of General Discussion, a meeting focusing on digital media and child rights that was convened by the Co...

Cien millones de niños y jóvenes se ven afectados por desastres naturales cada año. Más de la mitad de los 58 millones de niños y jóvenes de todo el mundo que asisten a la escuela viven en países afectados por la guerra y la violencia; la mayoría son niñas. Cuando ocurre una emergencia, muchos de ellos no pueden ir a la escuela. Un terremoto o una inundación podrían haber destruido las instalaciones y el trayecto puede haberse convertido en inseguro por un conflicto....

Tomorrow, an important event is taking place in New York City – one with repercussions far beyond the tiny island of Manhattan. Tomorrow, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will host the 2014 Climate Summit, with an important goal – to get everyone behind the plan to address climate change and the effects it will have on us all. But these effects are likely to impact some groups of people more than others – and children and young people are key among them. Not...

Pupils at the privately-run American International School in Gaza were back in class a week before the new academic year even began. Staff said they wanted to find a way of helping the children get back into a routine as soon as possible, so that...
