Stand up for under-5s for Universal Children's Day!
This Sunday, November 20, is UN #ChildrensDay - set up to honour the rights of children everywhere.
To celebrate it, and as part of our #5for5 campaign, Theirworld wants to raise awareness of the importance of the first five years of a child’s life.
Here’s how we can get people talking about it: simply post a photo of yourself as a 5-year-old - or younger. Each of us remembers what being little was like, right?
With #5for5 we want to help every child, everywhere, get the best start in life.
Post your photo
1. Find a picture of yourself aged 5 or younger
2. Share the photo on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter on Thursday, November 17 ahead of Universal Children’s Day
3. Include a sentence about why the first five years are so important - and make sure you include #5for5 and the petition link: theirworld.org/5for5
90% of brain development happens before the age of five. Help us raise awareness of early childhood development and put pressure on world leaders to make sure all children have access to quality care including nutrition, health, learning, play and protection.
