November 20, 1989

Declaration For Children’s Rights Enacted

In 1959, the United Nations issued its Declaration of the Rights of the Child.
The UN has universal rights that protect man and child without distinction of any kind, such as race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin.
But on this day in 1989 they declared, “The Rights of the Child to the end that he may have a happy childhood and enjoy for his own good and for the good of society the rights and freedoms….”
The declaration consists of ten principles that outlines and clarifies the legislative duties to ensure no child is without.
The declaration was first proclaimed by General Assembly Resolution on 20 Nov. 20, 1959 but was adopted 30 years later by the UN General Assembly.
