Search For Justice, a member of the GNRC, organized a media briefing on 17th October 2018 at Lahore Press Club, Pakistan to observe the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (IDEP). During the briefing the need for social protection as a basic human right for children as enshrined in the Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC Articles 26-27) was discussed. “Based on the Convention, children have the right to social security and an adequate standard of living, both of which can be guaranteed for children and families who live in poverty through publicly-funded social protection programs,” noted Ms. Rashida Qureshi of Search For Justice.
