Children’s Day is an annual event on November 20 to celebrate children’s rights. The commemorative day was declared by the United Nation in 1954 and marks the anniversary of the Declaration of the Rights of the Child and the Convention on the Rights of the Child. It is an opportunity for families, businesses and government to advocate, promote and celebrate children's rights in an effort to build thriving communities and bright futures for our children.
