12 August 2015

Royal Group Charity, joining efforts with the youth programs of sister agencies within the United Nations system is a priority in order to ensure that our action with and for young people has a real impact.

International Youth Day is observed annually on 12 August. It is meant as an opportunity for governments and others to draw attention to youth issues worldwide. During International Youth Day, concerts, workshops, cultural events, and meetings involving national and local government officials and youth organizations take place around the world. The theme of International Youth Day 2015 is “Youth Civic Engagement.” The engagement and participation of youth is essential to achieve sustainable human development. Yet often the opportunities for youth to engage politically, economically and socially are low or non-existent.
More efforts are needed to raise awareness about the importance of youth civic engagement and its benefits to the individual and to society, including for sustainable development as well as resilience and wellbeing. The International Youth Day 2015 campaign aims at promoting civic engagement and participation of youth in politics and public life, so that young people can be empowered and bring a full contribution to society, development and peace.
Join Royal Group Charity celebrate this remarkable day….

According to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Children – that all children are born with fundamental rights.

Right to Survival:             to life, health, nutrition, name, nationality

Right to Development:    to education, care, leisure, recreation, cultural activities

Right to Protection:         from exploitation, abuse, neglect

Right to Participation:    to expression, information, thought, religion

And a right to achieve these dreams. Even though Africa’s children account for more than one third of its population, their interests have never been given priority. And their rights have been violated everyday.

The children of Nepal need us now more than ever


Three months after April’s earthquake in Nepal, tens of thousands are still living in desperate conditions.

Royal Group Charity visited the Thali village outside the capital.

Villagers from rural areas have sought refuge in camps, receiving little help from the government.

The Nepali government is struggling to provide shelter for more than a million people.

Parts of Nepal have returned to relative normality since the quakes. Shops have reopened in Kathmandu, farmers are back in their fields and power lines are being reconnected.

But many families are making do under plastic sheets are a visible reminder of how much authorities need to do.
