World Children’s Day

Universally, World Children’s Day is celebrated on 20th of November. This date was chosen as a day to celebrate childhood. It was first established in 1954 by the UN General Assembly as Universal Children’s Day to promote international awareness, togetherness among children worldwide and to improve  children’s welfare.

The day 20th November, was chosen as it marks the anniversary of the day in 1959, when the Declaration of the Rights of the Child was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly. On the same date, in 1989 the Convention on the Rights of the Child was signed, which has been sanctioned by 191 states, ever since.

Basically, this day was instituted with the sole aim of promoting communal understanding among children, as well as to bring  about beneficiary action for each children all over the globe. World Children’s Day offers each of us an inspirational entry-point to advocate and celebrate children’s rights, translating into dialogues and actions that will build a better world for children.

Since 1953, UNICEF (United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund) has working as a permanent part of UN to save children’s lives, to defend their rights and to help them fulfil their potential, from early childhood  through adolescence.

Every year on the 20th of November the Children’s Day is observed all over the world to discuss over the future of the children and how to build children as the ideal citizens.

Children are future of a world. Its time for generations to come together to reimagine the type of world we want to create. On 20 November, kids will reimagine a better world.
