Google marks 65 years of celebrating Children’s day with a doodle displaying children in the garden reading books at their most comfortable.
The Universal Children’s day was created in 1954 and is celebrated on November 20 every year to promote international togetherness and awareness of the rights of the children.
This year marks 30 years of the Convention on the Rights of the Children that have impacted children’s lives around the world.
The UN General Assembly started the declaration and convention of children’s rights in 1954.
There has been a vast improvement in Children’s rights around the world. More steps are being taken to protect children from violence and abuse as well as provide them with basic welfare facilities.
It is a day of the year to commemorate children and ensure that they are provided the tools they require to not just survive but thrive in society.
UN Secretary-General António Guterres says,
“Around the world, children are showing us their strength and leadership advocating for a more sustainable world for all. Let’s build on advances and re-commit to putting children first. For every child, every right.”
