The Global Goals are linked to the rights of the child. If the goals are achieved, then the situation for children around the world will improve. If they are not achieved, it will mean that children will continue to be treated badly and that children’s rights will not be respected. That must not happen!
Global Goal 16. Peace and Justice links closely to the New Year message from Pope Francis.
No child should be subjected to violence, assault or exploitation, but should be able to grow up in peaceful, just communities.
