2015 Child Rights Education Week This year, they have chosen the right of non-discrimination as their theme. Their purpose is to share with others the message that, no matter what ability, what gender, what skin-colour, what height, what family, what culture, or what religion, no child should ever be excluded; no matter what, children are all different, but all equal. This year we celebrate inclusion.

Visit the Non-Discrimination Activities Database and learn more about the post card contest or find out about C.R.E.W. and the wellbeing of children.
