Progress for Children: A report card on adolescents

Progress for Children: A report card on adolescents

Ratings: (0)|Views: 290 |Likes:
For adolescents around the world, report cards
present a measure of their academic progress – and
can point the way towards their futures. But how does
the global community measure up in our efforts to
give those young people the futures they deserve –
and the tools and opportunities to make the most
of their lives?

As the 10th edition of UNICEF’s Progress for Children
shows, this report card is mixed. For while we have
made significant progress for millions of children over
the last decades – reducing child mortality, increasing
the number of children enrolled in primary school,
expanding access to health care services – our efforts
have left behind far too many adolescents between the
ages of 10 and 19.

We must reach them. For adolescence is not only a
pivotal time in the life of a child – the gateway to adulthood.
It is also a critical opportunity to make progress
for all children. And it is a stage of life in which we must
invest more attention, resources and effort today, or
suffer tomorrow the social and economic consequences
of a generation less equipped to become fully contributing
members of society.
