This colourful mural, or rather a few parts of a mural in an underpass in Frankfurt, was created by children. The writing suggests that at least some of them are not native German speakers, yet their take on children’s rights is powerful:
- I think all rights of children are important.
- Children should not be forced to work.
- I want all children to be able to move, have enough to drink and find new friends.
- Children should go to school.
- For me, it is most important to have fun.
- Children should be protected from war.
- Children should be loved and not ostracised.
- Every child has the right to voice their own opinion.
- Children have the right to a school, a home and enough to eat.
- I think it’s stupid when children are beaten.
- I think it’s important that all children have enough to drink.
- Every child has the right to go to school.
- For me the most important is that all children have a home.
- Children’s rights are similar to laws.
- Children may not be hurt.
- I think that no matter whether you have dark skin or light skin children can go to school.
- Children may not be beaten.
- Children should not fight in a war but go to school.
- I don’t like it when children fight about something.
- All children should have a home.

Glad you like it. The kids must have learned a lot about children’s rights and needs in preparation. And fun in doing the mural.
