International Children’s day

The International Children’s day is celebrated across the globe usually but not always on June 1 each year. As Pakistan joins the International community in observing the Universal Children’s day, this special day is celebrated on November 20, annually. As in ‘today’ :)

There is no holiday on this day but it is observed by NGOs working on Child Rights. It’s a non-commercial day to celebrated how special and important our children are and, to safeguard their rights. Right to education, right to special care and protection and to good food, housing and medical services. Right to go to school for free, to play and to have an equal chance to develop and to learn to be responsible and useful. And that they should not work before a minimum age. Above all, their right to be loved and cared for, no matter what their race, colour, gender, language, religion, political or other opinion, or where they were born or who they were born to.
