If we don’t stand up for children….then we don’t stand for much – Mariam W. Edelman.
Think about this for a moment: who is there to protect our children, YOUR children. The first thing that probably comes to mind is their parents, family, and loved ones around them.
But what happens when that’s not enough?
Us as a collective, as a society, we have the obligation to protect our children with fair laws and regulations. Laws that can guarantee that every child, no matter what their background, race, country, or economical situation might be, has access to basic human rights, and a safe and constructive environment to grow up in.
Sadly, many countries don’t have these basic laws – to protect youths. Many don’t have access to basic health care, are denied access to education, are exposed to horrible practices such as child marriage, and worse.
During this Incitement KL three topics will be covered:
Yes! This is happen right here. In Malaysia. And more often that you’d think.
Here, too, children lack basics rights. For example: in 2010 a United Nations report showed that over 82,000 married women in Malaysia were girls between the age of 15 and 19. And nearly 16,000 girls below the age of 15 were in a marriage. Think about that for a moment…
Join us at Incitement KL & become more aware of what’s happening around you, and learn how you can get involved to in giving child victims the opportunity to live a “normal” life – like you and me.
