New Children’s Agenda Signed by Political Leaders

Prime Minister Dean Barrow and Leader of the Opposition John Briceño today signed a new Children’s Agenda 2017-2030 on the occasion of the International Day of Families under the theme, “Families, education and well-being.” The National Committee for Families and Children’s vision of the Agenda speaks to a nation where the rights of all children are respected, protected and fulfilled; where their voices are heard, and they are supported to realize their maximum potential. It covers the development of children and adolescents from birth to nineteen years of age over the next fourteen years. According to the N.C.F.C., the agenda focuses on the role of families and family-oriented policies in promoting education and overall well-being of their members.  In particular, the agenda is to raise awareness of the role of families in promoting early childhood education and lifelong learning opportunities for children and adolescences.  This agenda will be achieved through a strategic action plan that includes six transformational goals and outcomes. In addition to both national and international commitments, the Agenda, the N.C.F.C. reports, is intended to make our society a better place to grow up and to promote the enabling environment which supports the fulfilment of children’s rights.
