Universal Children Day!

Today my children celebrated Universal Children Day for the first time in South Ethiopia, Wolaita. The children asked parents and the government to respect children right and avoid child labor.

It is very common in the villages like Shanto that a little child like the one in the picture below carry on many works which are beyond their capacity and age.

That is why my children celebrated this international day for the first time (it may be for the second time in Ethiopia). They marched from our office to the local government’s office and asked the government to stop child labor and other unlawful acts upon the children. That demonstration created a good awareness among the people of Shanto and public bodies.
