International Children’s Day


Children Are Our Future

Children are the seeds for our future. The better the nourishment, the healthier the plant. The more we invest in them, the greater our future.

International Children’s Day is celebrated annually on June 1st in different parts of the world as initiative for children’s wellbeing and rights.

This day is celebrated as part of a bigger revolution of ending child abuse, child slavery, ending the deprivation of children of their children rights and making efforts to improve the lives of all children around the world.

Celebrated as part of the 1985 Proclamation in Geneva at the World Conference on Child Welfare, the day is celebrated on different dates in different countries as South Africa celebrates its National Children Day in November 4th but the aim of the day has always been the same.

Since the World Wars that followed, it was observed that children had been severely abused, oppressed, and deprived of basic human rights. Being weak and timid, they could easily be forced into oppression and unjust, unethical and immoral activities. Millions of them were found to be malnourished.

“Together as a nation, we have the obligation to put sunshine into the hearts of our little ones. They are our precious possessions. They deserve what happiness life can offer.”
