UN End Poverty Day for Children’s Rights

The Irish 17 October Committee has begun meeting to plan for the Dublin commemoration of the UN International End Poverty Day on Thursday, 17 October next at the Human Rights and Poverty Stone, Customs House Quay.

In this year of the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, as well as the No Child 2020 campaign (Children’s Rights Alliance / Irish Times), our event will have as its theme: “Supporting children’s rights to footsteps for a better future.”

The Committee will publish periodic updates on its planning for the End Poverty Day event, as well on its support to the National Program for 17 October under the funding initiative of the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection, here and at www.17october.ie
