INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN'S RIGHT DAY - 20th NOVEMBER

International Children’s day

November 20th : Children’s rights Day

The Children’s day (or Children’s rights day) is celebrated every 20th of November ; This day marks the anniversary of the International convention for Children’s rights of November 20th 1989.

History of Children’s Day

In 1954, the UN recommended that « every country should introduce a Children’s Day which will be devoted to fraternity and to comprehension among children of the world, and which will stand out by activities encouraging Children’s well-being throughout the world. » (1)
If the UN « suggests to governments of each states to observe children’s Day on the day and in the way that best suit them », events of 1959 and 1989 designate inevitably the 20th November.
In fact, on November 20th 1959, the UN adopted the Children’s rights declaration, and on November 20th 1989, almost all of the states taking part in the UN ratified the International Convention for Children’s rights.To this day, only the United-States and Somalia have not ratified this convention.
