Universal Children’s Day is dedicated to promoting the ideals the UN has set for protecting the rights of children and promoting the general welfare of children all over the world.
Given how many kids on our planet are abused, neglected, or who grow up in conditions of poverty, disease, and broken or fractured family life, there is much need to focus on the real needs of children.
Universal Children’s Day provides an opportunity for doing just that and for promoting a host of specific causes and programs meant to enhance and benefit the lives of children.
