# My Freedom Day 2017

Last year, Monaco celebrated the 23rd anniversary of the Principality’s accession to the Convention on the Rights of the Child and, in 2015, Monaco ratified the Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings.

In 2012, Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene established the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation to save lives by putting an end to drowning. In 2016, the Princess travelled to India for the "Laureates and Leaders for Children Summit" to speak up for child rights.

As students around the world raise awareness of modern slavery on #MyFreedomDay, H.S.H. Princess Charlene reminds us that “young people have a right to be heard and to participate in decisions that affect them. I am proud to live in a country where child rights are at the top of the policy agenda.”
