http://www.lubetech.co.uk/41/charitable-supportUNICEF is the driving force that helps build a world where the rights of every child are realised.
The following are statements from UNICEF
States Parties shall take all appropriate measures to ensure that the child is protected against all forms of
discrimination or punishment on the basis of the status, activities, expressed opinions, or beliefs of the
child’s parents, legal guardians, or family members.
States Parties shall respect the right of the child who is separated from one or both parents to maintain
personal relations and direct contact with both parents on a regular basis, except if it is contrary to the
child’s best interests
The child shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive
and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the
form of art, or through any other media of the child’s choice.
States Parties shall respect the right of the child to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.
No child shall be subjected to arbitrary or unlawful interference with his or her privacy, family, home or
correspondence, nor to unlawful attacks on his or her honour and reputation.
States Parties recognize the important function performed by the mass media and shall ensure that the
child has access to information and material from a diversity of national and international sources,
especially those aimed at the promotion of his or her social, spiritual and moral well-being and physical
and mental health.
States Parties shall take all appropriate legislative, administrative, social and educational measures to
protect the child from all forms of physical or mental violence, injury or abuse, neglect or negligent
treatment, maltreatment or exploitation, including sexual abuse, while in the care of parent(s), legal
guardian(s) or any other person who has the care of the child.
Make higher education accessible to all on the basis of capacity by every appropriate means;
States Parties agree that the education of the child shall be directed to:
(a) The development of the child’s personality, talents and mental and physical abilities to their fullest potential
http://www.unicef.org.uk/Documents/Publ ... 910web.pdfThe preparation of the child for responsible life in a free society, in the spirit of understanding, peace,
tolerance, equality of sexes, and friendship among all peoples, ethnic, national and religious groups and
persons of indigenous origin
I also find it odd that the other charity supported is the RLNI. A superb organisation in it's own right, but strongly supported by a religious organisation that bans it's members from having boats or serving aboard a lifeboat?
