'For Every Child, Every Right': World Children's Day Being Observed Today

World Children's Day is being observed today to improve children's welfare worldwide.

The theme for World Children's Day for the year 2023 is 'For Every Child, Every Right'.

The day is being observed every year on November 20 to promote international togetherness and awareness among children worldwide and improve children's welfare.

According to UNICEF, World Children’s Day is a day for children, by children. The day is designed to put a spotlight on key issues affecting children- from ending childhood abuse and violence and their protection to ensuring children’s rights to an education, to play, to health care and to have a voice are met.

UNICEF says that children and young people have the same general human rights as adults and also specific rights that recognize their special needs. Children are neither the property of their parents nor are they helpless objects of charity. They are human beings and are the subject of their own rights.
