PRESS RELEASE – RISE (St. Lucia) Inc. recognizes the rights of children and young people to survive and thrive during the upcoming INTERNATIONAL CHILD RIGHTS WEEK – November 13 -20th – and beyond.

November 13 – 20th is recognized annually around the world as International Child Rights week – a week during which the world celebrates the rights of children as outlined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UN CRC), and a week which leads up to Universal Children’s Day – 20th November – the day on which the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child in 1959, and the UN CRC, in 1989.

The UN General Assembly recommended that all countries observe November 20th annually as a day of activity devoted to promoting the welfare of children around the world.

During that week, RISE will be sharing information with the general public and school students on child rights in general, and specifically on Child Abuse and its prevention, on November 19th, recognized internationally within that week as Child Abuse prevention day.

RISE will be joining the International Men’s Day fair at the RCI car park from 9am to 1pm on November 19th.

  1. A child has rights
    They have the right to an education and a meal......
    Not of people touching them and abusing them. The person who is the hand that is feeding you could be the one hurting you so be aware of what's going on around you listen to what a child has to say so you can save a life.


  2. Mr. King and your disciples will you also talk about child responsibilities.....You will just endorse all what the Americans say...they go to the U.N and pass "agreements" they themselves do not live up too. Children have rights but not over the hands that feed them....
