#DAC2018 Leave No Child Behind

The Day of the African Child (DAC) was instituted by the Heads of State and Government of the then Organization of the African Unity (OAU), now African Union (AU), in 1991, to honour the memories of the students who were massacred on the 16th of June 1976 by the Apartheid regime in South Africa, for protesting against the injustice and inequality in education. This year, Africa celebrates the day under the theme: “Leave no child behind for Africa’s development.”

The aim of the Campaign is to raise awareness and increase visibility of both the African Committee of Experts on the Rights and Welfare of the Child and national human rights institutions and its work in child rights issues in Africa.

Our objective of the Campaign is to disseminate key information about the Committee and national human rights institutions to State Parties, Civil Society Networks, children and the general public.
