On November 20 each year, we celebrate World Children’s Day. Originally known as Universal Children’s Day, it was first established in 1954 to foster international unity, raise awareness among children worldwide, and enhance their welfare.

It was also on the same date in 1959 when the UN General Assembly enacted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child. Also, on November 20, 1989, the UN General Assembly ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The theme for 2022 is Inclusion, For Every Child.

How can you participate in World Children’s Day?

Parents, teachers, health care professionals, government leaders, media professionals, religious leaders, and many other people take part in advocating for children’s welfare during this day. If you want to participate in spreading awareness, here are some things you can do:
