I have had the most interestingly fascinating encounters with children this year alone. In the process, I have learnt quite a lot about them. Children are mostly not trying to hide their feelings. They are as easy to read as their books. Perhaps the only things not as easy are their questions. They ask you things you think you know in the most ambiguous and complicated way. So you probably understand the silence and listlessness that ensued after I got the question: "Aunty, wh...

How many children around the world use the internet and mobile phones? How are children using social media? What are the risks to children using digital tools? What are the opportunities for improving access to information and education? The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child tells the world the rights that ALL children have.

The event featured a line-up of interesting speakers, passionate undertakers of the art of photography, who delivered remarks and personal stories on various aspects of photography. The event also highlighted a promo of t...

Something pretty important is happening on the 12th of September this year. The UN Committee for the Rights of the Child will meet in Geneva to discuss updating the Convention for the Rights of the Child for a digital age. The world has certainly changed a lot since the 1980′s, the decade throughout which the convention was first drafted! To assist the Committee in their deliberations, and to ensure that young people’s experiences can directly inform their discussion, we are curr...
