Bolivian President Evo Morales has Tuesday reaffirmed his pledge to crack down on all forms of child violence, with respect to the International Day of Innocent Victims of Aggression.
‘On this international day, we must reaffirm our commitment, both personally and as a State, to fight all forms of child violence. Bolivia´s future depends on guaranteeing the rights of our children now,’ Evo Morales wrote on Twitter.

The Bolivian Constitution, passed in 2009, guarantees the rights of children. Yet there are also several requirements that generate some mechanisms for immediate protection in favor of minors.

By 2019, the General State Budget allocated over 64 million dollars for the Juancito Pinto bonus. This incentive benefits elementary and high school students that in recent years scaled down school dropout rate in the South American nation, according to the Ministry of Economy´s data.

On August 19, 1982, the United Nations (UN) decided to commemorate the International Day of Innocent Victims of Aggression every June 4, to recognize the harsh reality of children victims of wars and armed conflicts.

This resolution was drafted on the basis of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and its Optional Protocol, and the annual resolutions on the Rights of the Child, while the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda set out a universal master plan for minors´ better future.
