How Should Governments Spend Money for Children's Rights?

This report presents the results of a study that asked children about how they thought governments should spend money for children’s rights. Over 2,500 children from 71 different countries responded. They participated in online surveys and face-to-face conversations.

Only one in three children felt that their government thought about children when deciding how to spend money. When asked what they think government should spend money on, the three most popular responses were:

  • Support for families who can’t afford things like food and houses
  • Taking the view of children seriously
  • Giving children safe places to play
