Children's earliest childhood experiences influence their future life. Child starts the life as dependent and completely relies on adults. Children are more vulnerable to poor living conditions, inadequate healthcare, nutrition, safe water, and housing. Argument for children's interests, survival, protection, and development shouldn't be dismissed. Each child in any country should have rights for healthcare, education, protection. Future of society depends on well- being of children and on their possibilities for development.
This artwork depicts toys (representing children) striking for children's rights, peace, love, family, wellness.
