A Civilized and Bright Future for Children

It is a unanimous desire of humankind to ensure that all children, who will shoulder the future of the country and nation, grow up happily and cheerfully with no pain and misery forever and to guarantee them a bright future by providing peaceful and happy conditions of living.

The adoption of the Convention helped to recognize the well-being and rights of the child, once a mere universal worry, as a major international issue and to coherently establish legal basis as well as executive and supervisory bodies for its solution, thus having laid a foundation to address the issue in a far-reaching manner.
