An Urgent Call to Action in Support of Children

as an Unambiguous Priority in All Global Policy Statements

Regarding Migration and Refugees

 

  • Representing members in more than 70 countries around the world, OMEP, the World Organization for Early Childhood Education, calls upon local, national, and global leaders to take immediate and responsible action.
  • The current situation in the world creates the urgent need for all nations to ensure the human rights of all children, especially the youngest and the most vulnerable, regardless of their migration status. All children must have access to all services and they must not be detained or separated from their families.
