Abstract


The World Summit for Children (1990) marked the dawn of a pleasant and brighter phase for the world's children. According to UNICEF, this World Summit reflected the world's hopes for children (UNICEF, 2002 p.ll). World leaders promised to ratify the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which was approved by the United Nations General Assembly the previous year (1989). At the Summit, "they signed on to ambitious goals to reduce child mortality, increase immunization coverage, deliver basic education and a whole raft of other measures by the year 2000 (FGN/UNICEF, 2001p.ll). This gave the hope that an action plan with time-tied concrete goals plus a specific legal framework would transform the lives of children worldwide in a short time. This means that the issue of children's survival, development, protection and education were no longer matters for charity but legal obligations.

Author Keywords: early childhood, building societies, partnerships.
