Within the 30 years anniversary celebration on signing children right convention, Representatives of the European Union, the United Nations, and the Palestinian Authority joined Palestinian students to celebrate the final stretch of the 30-day awareness-raising walk for child rights along the Masar Ibrahim Al-Khalil Trail.

” We believe that every single child should enjoy every single right, no matter the background, the economic situation of the family, or the gender. In Palestine, we are proud of our partnership with the Palestinian Authority and UN organisations. We are supporting Palestinian teachers, health personnel and social workers who are crucial for children’s health, education and social welfare. We will continue to working towards the goal of a world in which every child has a healthy and safe childhood, the opportunity to learn and a voice to speak for themselves. This world will be realised if we work together to ensure that children’s fundamental human rights are respected, promoted and protected”, stated the EU Head of Political Section, Simone Petroni.

“My Heritage! My Identity!” is an EU funded project aiming to contribute in preserving and promoting heritage located along the Masar Ibrahim Al-Khalil trail, to enhance Palestinian citizenship and identity. Masar Ibrahim Al-Khalil is a long-distance cultural hiking route in Palestine. The trail is 330 km long and extends from the village of Rummana northwest of Jenin to Beit Mirsim southwest of Hebron. The trail passes through more than 57 cities and villages.
