UNICEF: United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund, or United Nations Children’s Funds. Executive Director of UNICEF is Henrietta H Fore.
“Vietnam is the first Asian country and second in the world to ratify the Convention on the Rights of the Child(CRC),” according to http://www.unicef.org.
The Convention on the Rights of Child, or UNCRC, or Công ước Liên Hiệp Quốc về Quyền Trẻ Em, is the work of the United Nations that ensure children are treated as human beings and set out the rights of children in all aspects such as education, economic, social, political, etc.
As of 2021, the United States is the only country that signed but has not ratified the convention. Congress indicated that such commitment would give the US government unlimited power over families and children. America is a free country, and yes it gives its citizen the total freedom on domestic life.
I tried not to be subjective about the reason the US doesn’t ratify the UNCRC and its children’s reality in many undercover areas of America. This was interesting enough for today.
To celebrate my learning about UNICEF today, here’s a photo of a child I love.
