  • Description

    The United Nations have declared this year the International Year of the Child (IYC). Twenty years after the Declaration of the Rights of the Child, the United Nations insist that there remains a large number of children who lack even the rudimentary necessities of life. In Kenya, the 1979 national programme is the International Child Symposium.

    SYNOPSIS: The symposium opened at the Kenyatta Conference in Nairobi on Monday (19 March). It was scheduled to discuss ways to step up local and national programmes for the benefit of children.

    The symposium opened with folk dances as a prelude to the discussions. One of the pressing problems in Africa is education. In Kenya, for instance, only half the population is literate. And education is one of the principles of the Rights of the Child Charter, about which the Kenyan President Daniel Arap Moi spoke in his opening speech.
