Children’s Days for 2023-2024 year
How do you celebrate your Children’s Day? The Convention on the Rights of the Child, which is the most widely ratified international human rights treaty, sets out a number of children’s rights including the right to life, to health, to education and to play, as well as the right to family life, to be protected from violence, to not be discriminated, and to have their views heard. The officially recognized date of Children’s Day varies from country to country. On this page, you’ll find Children’s Day dates. Help us Help us
