In the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the rights of the child are thoroughly protected by law. They are guaranteed by the Law of the DPRK on Ensuring the Rights of the Child.

It is a consistent policy of the state to attach importance to the children and ensure their rights and interests preferentially.

The state always pays deep attention to the growth and development of the children and shows them all cares so that they can grow happily with nothing to envy in the world, fully exercising their rights.

Article 8 of the Law on Ensuring the Rights of the Child stipulates that the state shall preferentially provide the children with all the best things needed for their health, education and edification and life on the principle; "The best things to the children!".

In the DPRK the children are regarded as kings of the country and the work for the rising generations is considered to be the most important work of the Party and the state. It remained unchanged even in the difficult situation of the country.

Last year the Third Plenary Meeting of the Eighth Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea adopted a policy of the Party on supplying the children across the country with nourishing foods including dairy products at state expense.

At the plenary meeting, the respected General Secretary Kim Jong Un said: Though we have a hard time, we should show greater sincerity to the children and dynamically advance to the future of communism by dint of the love. It should be the way of advance and development of our revolution.

Article 23 of the Law on Ensuring the Rights of the Child stipulates that the children shall have the right to receive the universal 12-year compulsory education and that the universal 12-year compulsory education shall be free.

Everywhere in the DPRK there are schools, schoolchildren's palaces, Children's Union Camps and schoolchildren's halls.

The law also says that the children shall have the right to enjoy the benefits of complete and universal free medical care system.

Article 31 of the law stipulates that the children who cannot be looked after by their parents or guardians shall be brought up at the baby homes, orphanages and schools for orphans at state expense.

Taking care of orphans is one of the serious social problems arising in any society.

In the DPRK such children are leading a cheerful life without gloom under the state benefits. It is the intention of Kim Jong Un to bring them up well as famous scientists, athletes, artistes, soldiers and heroes.

The Korean children are vivaciously growing into masters of the future in the socialist system which is responsible for their dreams, hope, destiny and future.

There is a saying; look at the children if you want to know the progressive nature of a society.
