Universal Children’s Day takes place each year to observe a day of alliance and understanding between children around the world. In the United States, we celebrate Universal Children’s Day on November 20, the day the Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of Children and the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Considering the obligations of the United Nations and in accordance to a resolution, the General Assembly recommended that all countries establish a Universal Children’s Day where activities are to be devoted to promote the ideals and objectives of the Charter and the welfare of the children around the world.
In an effort to support Universal Children’s Day, UNICEF, and the Millennium Development Goals, we have created an infographic, “Children’s Rights” with statistics sharing worldwide labor, safety and health-related facts relating to children.
