30 years from the ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

UNICEFSofia, November 20, 2019

World Children’s Day – November 20th, this year was commemorated with two significant events in which BFPA actively participated. A National forum marking the 30th anniversary of the ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, organized by UNICEF in partnership with the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy and the Bulgarian Association for People with Intellectual Disabilities, as well as the Youth Forum Voice It, organized by the National Network for Children and the “Megaphone” Program.
The National forum called “With eyes open for all” was under the patronage of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Bulgaria Boyko Borissov and its theme was social inclusion and empowerment of children with disabilities. The participants were young people with disabilities who, through their personal stories, revealed the huge potential they have, which often remains untapped because of the lack of clarity on behalf of teachers and employers for the necessary individual approach to each of the young people. Different disabilities often have easy solutions for facilitation of the working conditions with and for the people, but these solutions in most cases remain only theoretical because of lack of understanding of the problem.
