MEGJASI REPORT ON CHILDREN IN MACEDONIA
About 18.000 children in Macedonia don't attend primary school, among them, more than 1.000 live on the street, in severest conditions, reported the Megjasi organisation for the International Children's Day yesterday.
"Children who are excluded from education process are the most frequent victims of sexual abuse, pedophilia, trafficking, and child labour."
"For better protection of children it is necessary to synchronize the action of all
relevant institutions and to assume the obligations and responsibilities envisaged by the Constitution and the World Convention on Child Rights, given the fact that Macedonia is a signatory of the Convention," Megjasi said.
They called upon a better co-operation between the civic organizations and the state institutions whose main task is to take care and protect the children in Macedonia.
MD: Megjasi is the first children's embassy in the world, based in Skopje. And they are doing a great job!There are still many kids in Macedonia living under very difficult circumstances.
