Although there is much to be done to end preventable child and infant deaths, significant progress has been made.
Children have a right to an education.
Discipline in schools should respect children's human dignity.
Primary education should be free for all children.
Wealthy countries should help poorer countries achieve all child education rights.
Education should develop each child's personality and talents to the full.
Education should encourage children to respect their parents, and their own and other cultures.
We're on a mission to see every child learning, right up until they are 18 years old.
Our work for education is varied - from programmes in South Africa and Zambia so new mothers can go back to school after childbirth, to providing School-in-a-Box kits and tents to create temporary classrooms for children after natural disasters.
We also set up early childhood centres throughout the Pacific and South America, and provide child development and recreation programmes to developing regions so kids have the chance to play and learn in a safe environment.
