The Childhood bracelet

Most countries in the world have agreed that children’s rights shall be protected. In showing unity for children, several countries have signed the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Every bead on this bracelet represents one of the many articles of this Convention. The beads and Childhood would like to remind you that all children have a right to a happy and secure childhood.

The Childhood bracelets are made of plastic beads on an elastic thread. They are manufactured in Sweden by the social enterprise Samhall. Read more about the production here.
