Today is the 20th anniversary of the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child, or UNCRC. The UNCRC is a treaty that grants children under the age of 17 more than 40 rights, including the rights to survive, to education, to health, to protection from harm, and to be heard. The treaty has been signed by almost every country in the world.
To celebrate the anniversary, World Photography Organisation, Sony, and UNICEF will be sending six young photographers to Ethiopia with National Geographic photographer and humanitarian Reza.
Read an interview with Reza on National Geographic Kids.
