Every year on 20 November, the world comes together to celebrate child rights. This year is unique as UNICEF celebrates its 70th anniversary in December, marking seven decades of working tirelessly to advance the rights of every child everywhere in the world.

To highlight its important achievements, UNICEF invites writers from all continents to celebrate and advocate for children’s rights by participating in the ‘Tiny Stories: For Every Child’ challenge. UNICEF is inviting you to write a tiny story under the theme ‘What I want for every child’ to help the organization promote the importance of child rights.
