The rights of children 

International human rights treaties define the rights that every human being should have equally. These rights also apply to children. Children’s rights are also protected by a separate Convention on the Rights of the Child approved by the United Nations General Assembly. This convention is also valid in Finland.  

The website has information about the rights of children in languages such as Finnish, Simplified Finnish, Somali and Arabic

The At Home in Finland project has produced many kinds of videos for people who have moved to Finland. Here is a video on the rights of children in the Arabic and Somali languages.
