Universal Children’s Day Charity Walk 2019 (Nov. 30, Saturday)

November 20th is the day the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child was adopted by the United Nations, which was made to protect the human rights of children around the world. However, since then many children in the world and in Japan continue to suffer violations of their rights. We want to change this situation.

We are holding a Charity Walk to provide an opportunity for everyone to think about children’s rights. With everyone’s participation, this project will succeed in sending a strong message to society that ‘Children must be valued!’

Our Japanese site for the Charity Walk is available here.
