Convention on the Rights of the Child

Making Things Right

Saadia Iqbal's picture

ChildrenHow many of you have seen children working or perhaps begging in the streets? Or looking malnourished or unhappy? Growing up in Pakistan, I often witnessed this. It's always sad to see children who are not in school as they should be, or playing with other children and enjoying the outdoors. Childhood should be a carefree period in everyone's life; free of burden and hardship.
