THE UN’s World Children’s Day is celebrated this Sunday under the theme, “Inclusion, for ever child”.
The commemorative day aims to promote awareness of children’s rights and improve their welfare.
This year, the South African human rights NPO Ikamva Labantu wants to prepare 2000 disadvantaged learners in it’s after-school care programme, Afternoon Angels, to start their 2023 academic year on the same footing as their peers.
The NPO says having school uniforms improves pupils’ performance.
“Let’s play our part in the 4th Sustainable Development Goal to ensure inclusive and equitable education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all,” the group said.
