Universal Children’s Day

Universal Children’s Day

Roots International Schools nationwide branches celebrated Universal Children’s Day under the umbrella of Global Citizenship Club. English teachers should seek good speakers and present on. Main focus should be on telling the students about Universal Children’s Day that takes place annually on November 20. First proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 1954, it was established to encourage all countries to institute a day, firstly to promote mutual exchange and understanding among children and secondly to initiate action to benefit and promote the welfare of the world’s children.
Universal Children’s Day is not simply a day to celebrate children for who they are, but to bring awareness to children around the globe that have succumbed to violence in forms of abuse,exploitation and discrimination. Children are used as labors in some countries, immersed in armed conflict, living on the streets, suffering by differences be it religion, minority issues, or disabilities.
