Today is Universal Children’s Day!!
In 1954 the United Nations General Assembly recommended that all countries around the world should set aside a day to celebrate children. The aim was that Children’s Day would be seen as a symbol of worldwide fraternity and understanding, and also be an opportunity to promote the welfare of children.
The Assembly suggested that Children’s Day be observed on the date which each country considers appropriate.
The 20th of November — International Children’s Day — marks the day in which the Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child in 1959, and the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989
UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund, promotes and coordinates this special day, which also works towards improving children’s welfare.
