WORLD VISION 2021 Virtual #RunForChildren

 

 

Run, jog or walk to protect children and their rights!

Children are vulnerable to violence, exploitation and child labour. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented turmoil for children around the world, disrupting their access to basic necessities and putting millions of their lives at risk.

There are more than 1.5 billion children who are currently out of school around the world.

It takes you and I to raise awareness and protect children!

#RunForChildren in 2021 is a 42 minutes virtual run to raise awareness and advocate for the 42 rights of children.

Under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), children have 42 rights. These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and develop their full potential. They apply equally to every child, regardless of ethnicity, gender or religion. Learn more here.

Proceeds from our annual #RunForChildren are channelled to child protection efforts in Malaysia and overseas to support children’s safety, to call out violence when it occurs, and to work with survivors to heal and recover. We want children to experience a safe and secure childhood that will advance their sense of well-being.

Take it a step further

• Sponsor a Child
Continue protecting children like the one on your runner’s bib through the World Vision Child Sponsorship Programme. You can sponsor a child here on our website or send us an email at [email protected]

• Limited Edition Mask
A mask can help protect us from COVID-19, but it will not stop us from speaking out so that children’s rights can be heard and protected. Add a special edition mask for outdoor activities with a minimum contribution of RM18 per mask. Your contribution will be used to provide an opportunity and platform for boys and girls to stand up and speak up for their rights.

This mask is:

  • A 3 PLY Nano PTFE mask
  • Washable, breathable and antibacterial
  • Designed by 11-year-old Negun from Mongolia, who wants every child in the world to enjoy a peaceful childhood, one free from violence and fear
