Refugee Law Project (RLP) joins the global community to commemorate the Day of the African child, today 16th June 2021 under the theme: “30 years after the adoption of the Charter: accelerate implementation of Agenda 2040 for an Africa fit for children”. The day of the African Child was first established by then Organization of African Unity, now African Union, in 1991. It aims at raising awareness on the plight of children in Africa and across the globe, and the need to promote children’s rights and a safer environment for their physical, social, emotional and cognitive development. This day presents an opportunity for all stakeholders to reflect on children’s potential and the nature of hindrances the African child continue to grapple with.
