For every child, every right

Last year the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) turned 30, and to commemorate the milestone the Embassy of Sweden produced a photo essay which they exhibited on their embassy walls. Kubatana took a stroll past to look at the exhibition and we were delighted not only to see the great photography by Zimbabwean photojournalist Tafadzwa Ufumeli but also drawings and paintings by Westridge Primary School children depicting their interpretation of what rights are important in Zimbabwe, including the right to freedom, education and the right to have a family and not to be neglected. Some of the rights that the Embassy of Sweden highlighted are the right to family guidance as children develop, the right to a name and nationality, the right to be heard, and the right to rest and play. See the rest of the rights and the photographs here.
