Several beneficiary children have sent us videos to celebrate the 34th anniversary of the signing of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child. These children and young people share their views on their inherent rights.
Through these inspiring videos, the children invite us to see the world through their eyes, to understand their experiences and to recognise the crucial importance of Children’s Rights.
Each video is an open window, offering heartfelt reflections on themes such as education, health, nutrition, protection and participation. These ambassadors of hope express their aspirations and dreams and highlight the challenges they face on a daily basis.
Their words on the Rights of the Child transcend linguistic and cultural barriers, uniting the voices of these young people in a symphony for a fairer and more equitable future.
By sharing these videos, PARTAGE hopes to amplify the voices of these children, transforming their messages into a powerful force for raising awareness on this day of 20 November, which serves as a reminder of the crucial importance of guaranteeing the rights of every child everywhere in the world.

Testimony of Yolaine Guérif, Managing Director of PARTAGE
“On this anniversary of the Rights of the Child, many of us want to shout out to the world that children should all have the right to live in peace, to grow up protected and to play freely.
Nearly 45 million children are displaced by conflicts around the world, 244 million do not go to school and 1 in 3 children around the world does not grow up normally because of malnutrition!
This situation, which makes us howl, also gives us the energy to fight relentlessly, even though great progress has been made over the last 34 years. I’ll let you listen to these children who are bearing witness for us on this anniversary, they give us wings to build a better world together!”
By celebrating 20 November, PARTAGE and its local partners on the ground are reaffirming their daily commitment to the rights of all children, emphasising that every day counts in the quest for a world where every child can grow up with dignity, protection and hope for the future.
