Did you know that...

... the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989 was and still is the most ratified international treaty in history. It states that every child has the right to learn and use their parent's language, even if that language is not spoken by most people where they live (Article 30).

"The Convention changed the way children are viewed and treated - in other words, as human beings with a distinct set of rights instead of as passive objects of care and charity."

This is how we see children of bilingual families of all kinds.  

That is why we advance every child's right to their mother tongue with our Language Lost & Found campaign.
