Justice for Every Child: COVID-19 and the world's most marginalised children
COVID-19 has affected almost every country in the world, and nobody will feel the worst of its impact as painfully as the world’s most marginalised young people.
Children living in hard-to-reach villages, children in informal ‘slum’ settlements, children forced to work, children on the move - all of them and more will experience both immediate and longer-term suffering if the world does not act now.
Through the JUSTICE FOR EVERY CHILD campaign, 100 Million is working with its partners and international network of youth activists to call on the international community to provide immediate action for marginalised children and young people.
ACTIVISM DURING COVID-19
The 100 Million campaign is committed to fighting for the rights of all children to be free, safe and educated, and will continue to do so during this time when the most marginalised are likely to be disproportionately affected.
Find out how you can keep up the fight for justice for every child, even when our freedom of movement has been restricted to halt the pandemic.
CHANGE IS POSSIBLE.
NO PLACE FOR A CHILD: UNACCOMPANIED CHILD REFUGEES
All over the world, hundreds of thousands of children are forced to flee from war or disaster without the most basic protection of their family.
100 Million youth activists are campaigning for the rights of unaccompanied child refugees in different parts of the world, with active campaigns running in Chad, Uganda, and across the European Union.
WHEN WILL EVERY CHILD HAVE JUSTICE?
100 Million is asking you to loudly and boldly ask the question “when will every child have justice?” by creating an iconic protest banner and taking part in our Rallies for Every Child. Each Rally, in each community across the world, will unite as a global cry for the rights of every child to be free, safe and educated. Will you join us to demand justice for every child?
