Liberia Children's Law

Liberia is one of the first countries to adopt comprehensive legislation for children that is largely based on the CRC and the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child.

Senior government officials, members of the Liberian Children’s Parliament, and UN and civil society representatives gathered at the stadium to celebrate the day with speeches, exhibitions, cultural performances, dances and sports.

“When we see you walking around, talking to each other, enjoying the day, we can just be so happy and say, this particular [Children’s Law is] to protect you, is one that has been long in the making,” said 2011 Nobel Peace Laureate and President of Liberia Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf , to the thousands of children in attendance .
