Universal Children’s Day to be celebrated on Nov 20


ISLAMABAD: The Universal Children’s Day will be celebrated across the globe, including Pakistan, on November 20, with a call for securing the rights of children.

According to media reports, various public and private organisations would hold seminars, conferences, rallies and walks to show the plight of those children who were deprived of the basic amenities of life.

On December 14, 1954, the United Nations General Assembly recommended that all countries should introduce an annual event from 1956, known as Universal Children’s Day, to encourage fraternity and understanding between children all over the world, while also promoting the welfare of children.
