Contrasting Realities Mirrored in Fates of Children

The humankind made clear in the “Declaration of the Rights of the Child” and the “Convention on the Rights of the Child” adopted in 1959 and 1989 respectively at the United Nations General Assembly that children have the rights to enjoy special protection in family and society.

All children are taken care of in the nurseries and kindergartens at the expense of the state and society as a result of the adoption in 1976 of Law on the Nursing and Upbringing of Children. And all schoolchildren are benefiting from the 12-year compulsory and free education system to learn and bring their hopes and talents into full bloom without knowing any worries and discrimination.
