The Minister of Social Affairs, Pauline Irène NGUENE, took the floor and declared that the commemoration of this year's edition under the theme "30 years after the adoption of the Charter: Accelerate the implementation of Agenda 2040 for an Africa fit for children", sufficiently describes the will of African governments to have a human capital capable of ensuring the succession for future generations by 2040. This theme also calls on stakeholders to take necessary and urgent measures at the national level to ensure compliance with the rights of the child. The Minister presented the institutional and operational measures that have been taken by the government to combat violence against children. She underlined that other initiatives will be taken with the help of parliamentarians to further protect these children.
