Sao Tome and Principe

This island nation located in the Gulf of Guinea off the coast of Central Africa is a former Portuguese colony. On children's rights, the country has yet to ratify all three Optional Protocols to the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Meanwhile plans to implement a stronger education system are hindered by a lack of domestic financing, which has resulted in poor infrastructure in schools. The practice of early marriages is also a persistent children’s rights violation.
