Description
"Dignity for all children without discrimination, esteemed as a pioneering influence to lead the country into a better future, to grow as upright, beautiful, and courageous individuals.... (excerpt from the preamble to the Children's Charter...)

2007 marks the 50th anniversary of the declaration of the Children's Charter.

As the term of respect for the child, the word "Eorini" was coined in 1920 by Sopa Bang Jeong-Hwan, who dedicated his entire life to enhancing the potential of children. By establishing "Saekdonghwoi," the first cultural movement in Korea dedicated to the welfare of children, he performed many activities as a pioneer of children's human rights movement in Korea. He pushed for the dedication of the "Day of Children", and published magazines for children. In honor of "Let's Respect the Children" - the catchphrase used during his lifetime -, the Children's Charter was declared on May 5, 1957, which was revised in 1988 to the current Charter with 11 Articles.

Anticipating that our children will grow as Koreans who will lead Korea into a brighter future, just as declared in the Children's Charter, and grow as global citizens contributing to peace for all mankind, a new stamp is being issued to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of the Children's Charter. This new stamp, in the form of stickers, projects the sweet smell of strawberry.
