In Pakistan, 20th November is celebrated as Universal Children’s Day every year with the commitment to safeguard the rights of children. Pakistan as a signatory to the UN Convention on the Rights of Children (ICRC) has been making sincere efforts at all national, regional and international fora to protect the rights of children.
It is our obligation to protect our children and provide them access to development and participation opportunities without any discrimination of status, caste, creed or religion. The Government of Pakistan is committed to protect its children from all types of exploitation, exclusion and marginalization. At the same time, it is endeavoring to provide them equal opportunities and an enabling environment to excel in every sphere of life. We reiterate our pledge towards promotion and protection of children’s rights in the country.
