Dateline: A Child's View of UN Special Session - 2002-05-14

In early May, 2002 New York hosted the United Nations General Assembly Special Session on Children, a gathering of heads of state and children from over 180 countries intended to assess the needs of children and arrive at a consensus for a plan to aid children over the next 13 years. In addition, children from 12 countries earned the chance to express their views and concerns to the U.N. leaders.

VOA's Adam Phillips spoke with several of them for this special Dateline report.
