Youth Fest Charity Walk

November 17
World Children’s Day
Charity Walk 2018

World Children’s Day “Youth Festival” Optional Event

November 20 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 have not been valued in the world or in Japan, and they have suffered greatly. We want to change this situation, and we want everyone to think about the rights of children again.

It is with this thought that Human Rights Now celebrates this day. We are holding a Charity Walk which everyone can participate in for charity. With everyone’s participation, this project will succeed and send a strong message to society that “Children must be valued!”

Why don’t you join us in thinking about this message for the day?
