Six years old Kajal had an immense appetite for learning and wanted to be in school. But all she could do was to go to a dilapidated Aangandwadi Centre in her village where the scope for learning was really limited. Her journey to get quality education commenced last year, when Save the Children stepped in to support her Aanganwadi Centre which came as a part of our programme to improve the quality of education in 100 Aanganwadi Centres and 100 government schools in the villages of Gaya and Patna districts in Bihar.

Our efforts have started bearing fruit. Today, Kajal along with eight other children from our project have reached formal schools. and many more are on their way.

How did it happen? Read this amazing story of Kajal here: bit.ly/thekajalstory

Twenty-five years ago, the world made a promise to children in the form of United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (#UNCRC): that we would make every possible effort to protect and promote their rights to survive and thrive, to give them opportunities to learn and grow, to make their voices heard and to help them reach their full potential.

Save the Children is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the most important week in the history of child rights - #CRC25 - with great enthusiasm, reinforcing its resolve to do everything possible to ensure that no child is denied their rights. Watch this space as we bring you more updates and inspiring stories. For now, we leave you with an interesting and informative illustration: ‘See My Rights Through My Eyes’ which captures the evolution of child rights, the milestones achieved, the challenges which remain and the way forward: http://bit.ly/1wzvAlf #EVERYChild

Back in 1923, Save the Children’s founder Eglantyne Jebb announced to the world that children too have certain rights which need to be acknowledged and respected. She drafted a 5-point ‘Declaration of the Rights of the Child’ which was adopted by United Nations’ forerunner League of Nations. It was the extended version of her vision which would eventually be adopted by the UN in 1989 as the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).

November 20th marks the 25th anniversary of the UNCRC. At Save the Children, we’re observing the #CRC25 week with great gusto and will be organizing a number of events in this week. Our CEO Thomas Chandy will be speaking at United Nation’s CRC@25 event in New York. #StayTuned as we bring you updates… #EVERYChild

Action/2015, the global movement to end poverty, inequality and climate change and make 2015 a year of action and not half measures, sees the light of the day in India. The action for Action/2015 kicked off with a congregation of 200 children, youth and members of various civil society organizations gathering in New Delhi to give a definitive thrust to the agenda of calling upon global leaders to set truly ambitious targets for the coming years. A group of fifteen 15 years old children submitted a charter of 15 demands (see the images below) to the Hon’ble Minister of Minority Affairs, Dr Najma Heptulla.

Action/2015 is bringing together people united by the belief that 2015 can be a pivotal year for shaping the future of the world. At Save the Children, we are determined to rise to the occasion and do our bit in building a society which treats children well and gives them their due.

Some glimpses from the event…

#JKFloodRelief Update: We have started our Winter Education Camps catering to the flood-affected children in Jammu & Kashmir. Currently, 10 camps are operational - 2 each in Srinagar, Pulwama, Budgam, Anantnag, and Poonchh and many more are in the pipeline.

The devastating floods in September brought the education of numerous children in J&K to a standstill and many of them have still not started going to school again. These camps aim to fill that gap by making up for the loss of education and eventually help children resume formal schooling without any hiccups. Your support can empower us to help ensure that flood-affected children do not drift away from education. Donate now: http://bit.ly/JKwinterrelief

Save the Children is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and on its eve we’re launching The World of India's Girls (WINGS) 2014 Report in New Delhi.

The report offers a comprehensive analysis of the government’s policies and the current status of girl children in India. It vividly traces the journey of girl children once they have moved past the hurdle of birth, captures their overall struggle and portrays how the society dictates life choices that determine their future.

Join us tomorrow on Twitter at @stc_india from 11 am onwards for live updates on the event. We’ll see you there… #IndiasGirlChildren #UNCRC #CRC25
