Abstract: In preparation for the UN Special Session on Children, a statement was created by UN Agencies, NGOs, donor organisations and youth to reaffirm commitments made in the CRC. This is presented in ‘A World Fit for Children’. The document can be found at www.gmfc.org. As the statement was being developed, many in the ECD community did not feel that the official text adequately reflected the issues and concerns of those working with young children and their families. Thus, under the leadership of the CG, a set of additional proposals was produced. These are introduced in this article, and presented as additions to the relevant points in ‘A World Fit for Children’.
