November 20 is Universal Children’s Day – a day to promote the rights and well-being of children and to mark the day that the United Nations adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).

The CRC is made up of 54 articles – or rights – and, as shown in the slideshow below, many of them are directly connected to the work that Plan does.
