“When children’s rights are respected, the nation has a future”
Sharon, from Cameroon, is passionate about defending the rights of children. During the 25th anniversary of The Convention on the Rights of the Child, she gave a presentation urging stakeholders to promote children’s rights – such as education and health – by providing scholarships and other educational support. She is a member of the community forum in her village, where she supports and represents the children in her community. She is also a member of Girls at the Front Club, which specifically advocates girls’ rights. Sharon’s instinct for activism makes her an inspiration to many. In the future she wants to advocate for children’s rights by making more presentations and becoming active in a variety of forums.
