about

MINE & YOURS: Human Rights for Children defines basic human rights and teaches children about asserting their rights with integrity and responsibility. In 1946 the United Nations Commission on Human Rights, headed by Elanor Roosevelt, began to formulate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The ideals compiled by the commssion have become beacons of dignity and hope for people the world over. And now, for the first time ever, essential human rights as codified in the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child are being presented in music specifically for children. This album was written for Amnesty International and their campaign for the rights of Children worldwide.
