Welcome to the toolbox

The CRC toolbox gives you access to all the latest information from around the web relating to the Convention on the Rights of the Child.


Adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on November 20, 1989, the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) is a multilateral human rights treaty that promotes the rights of all children worldwide.


The CRC recognizes all children's rights to develop physically, mentally, and socially to their fullest potential, to express their opinions freely, and to participate in decisions affecting their future.


The CRC is the first legally binding international instrument that incorporates the full range of human rights — civil, cultural, economic, political, and social — into a single text.


The CRC provides a vision of children as individuals and as members of a family and community, with rights and responsibilities appropriate to their age and stage of development.


Toolbox is a project of content that moves.

With Taliban’s Revival, Dread Returns to Swat Valley

With Taliban’s Revival, Dread Returns to Swat Valley | CRC toolbox | Scoop.it

As battle rages in North Waziristan, where the Pakistani military says it has killed more than 500 militants, unfinished business from the army’s first major assault on the Taliban lingers painfully in the Swat Valley, at the other end of Pakistan’s Pashtun belt.


Five years ago, Pakistani soldiers flooded into Swat as part of an operation to banish the Taliban from the valley. The offensive became a cherished victory for Pakistani generals, who presented it as evidence of their counterinsurgency prowess.

Taliban Survivor, Malala Visits Nigeria To Campaign For Chibok Girls - www.channelstv.com

Taliban Survivor, Malala Visits Nigeria To Campaign For Chibok Girls - www.channelstv.com | CRC toolbox | Scoop.it

Pakistani rights activist, Malala Yousafzai, who survived being shot in the head by Taliban a few years ago for campaigning for girl child education, arrived Abuja, Nigeria in the early hours of Sunday July 13, to raise her voice in the demand to release the kidnapped Chibok girls.


Malala, who will celebrate her 17th year birthday on Monday, met with relatives of the more than 200 kidnapped girls who were kidnapped by militant group, Boko Haram, from a school at Chibok in April.

Some of the parents broke down into tears as Malala spoke at a hotel in the capital Abuja on Sunday.

“I can see those girls as my sisters … and I’m going to speak up for them until they are released,” said Malala.
