Adopt The Rights of a Child
Adopt The Rights of a Child is an Ethereum-powered fundraiser which allow you to personally ratify and support any article from the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
This is an experiment using a public ledger and blockchain technology to allow people to personally ratify articles from the CRC that matter the most to them, independent of what their country’s stance on the convention is. Each article from the CRC has been uploaded to the Ethereum Blockchain in the form of a smart contract that stores information on who’s adopted it and also the amount ether donated.
The donations are stored in the article smart contracts and can only be transferred to UNICEF’s Cryptocurrency Fund.
About the Convention:
30 years ago, the United Nations created the CRC. Every UN country has ratified it and are bound to it by international law. Every country except the USA. Adopt the Rights of a Child is a project about democratizing the ratification of children’s rights, allowing people to support the convention regardless of what their government might say. So choose an article you want to support and ratify it yourself by adopting and donating money to that right. The CRC is a human rights treaty based on 42 articles which sets out the civil, political, economic, social, health and cultural rights of children. It goes without saying that governments should support it and create laws meant to protect children. This project aims to let people take the power into our own hands and make sure that all our children have a safe and nourishing place to live and grow.
