– “Know Your Rights and Claim Them” is a book that adults do not want to show children because it equips them with the knowledge of how to defend their rights and the rights of others – noted Angelina Jolie. – World governments pledged to protect children’s rights in 1989, but many still fail to listen to their voice. In some countries, 9-year-old girls are forced into marriage. Globally, over 61 million children do not go to school. In 2019, one in six lived in extreme consumption, and this number only increased during the pandemic. It’s high time to remind the world of the promise once made, she added.
As we read on the organization’s website, the book hit the shelves in Great Britain on September 2, but it can also be ordered in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Greece. Children in South Korea, Denmark and Germany are waiting for their turn. However, it is not known when the Polish version of the publication will appear. The authors hope that it will be available in every place on earth with time – mainly for the good of the young generation.
