A special anniversary publication of the 30 year history of Defence for Children International
This publication examines the journey of child rights dating back to the creation of the Defence for Children International organization in 1979. You can learn more about the history of our organization, specifically about the dream of the visionary founder and those who understood him and joined him. Their heroic struggles to realize this dream are narrated in detail as well as the foundation of the DCI national sections. Understanding their vision better helps us safeguard their legacy and carry it further into the 21st century. As long as there are children, we must defend their rights.
