Children submit NGO contribution to the UPR for the first time

Children from Lebanon, under the initiative of the non-governmental organisation World Vision, came together in order to write and send to the OHCHR a submission to the review of Lebanon, held on 10 November 2010.

Hassan, one of the children, came to Geneva to attend the review, share his experience with NGOs and meet with Kyung-wha Kang, Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights of the United Nations.

UPR Info was able to interview Hassan about this unique initiative:
