MY 12 BILL OF RIGHTS FOR KIDS 2017

by Timon Studler/unspalsh.com

I was hoping 2016 was a better year for you, but it seems that very little progress has been made to help children move out of poverty and hunger, grow up in peace, and receive an education. 

As we enter 2017, this world is faced with a challenge just to get food into every child's belly. In the world, one in every eight kids go to bed hungry. In addition, over 20,000 kids die each and every day, and one in five die before they reach five years of age. That is unacceptable! The world grows enough food to feed over 10 billion people, but it cannot seem to feed the 795 million people who are dying of starvation. Why? Well maybe it has something to do with greed and war. After all there are more than 230 million kids living in war torn countries. Then there is the matter of education.  For 57 million kids, there is no education--no school--no teachers--no knowledge. So here is my 2017 Children's Bill of Rights.  


  1. Every child has the right to food.
  2. Every child has the right to climb out of poverty.
  3. Every child has the right to health care.
  4. Every child has the right to play without fearing for their life.
  5. Every child has the right to go to school.
  6. Every child has the right to an education.
  7. Every child has the right to shelter.
  8. Every child has a right to live in peace.
  9. Every child has the right to grow up.
  10. Every child has the right to dream and to expect those dreams to come true.
  11. Every child has the right to privacy.
  12. Every child has the right to be loved.

What can you do to help yourself? To help another child? Or, to educate your parents so that they reach out and help a child in need? Let's make 2017 a better year and give children the rights they deserve!
