New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern pledged to take action on child poverty in a video posted on November 20, the Universal Children’s Day.

After showing off a picture of a Christmas tree coloured by her three-year-old niece, Ardern said she’d be fulfilling her campaign promise to quickly pass a bill requiring the government to measure and take action on child poverty.
