About World Children’s Day

Every year on 20 November, World Children’s Day—originally known as Universal Children’s Day—is observed to foster global understanding, raise children’s consciousness, and enhance their welfare.

The day the UN General Assembly enacted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child on 20 November 1959 is significant. The UN General Assembly also adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989.

Since 1990, the UN General Assembly has celebrated World Children’s Day on the anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration and the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The Convention on The Rights of The Child

Against a changing world order, world leaders came together in 1989 and made a historic commitment to the world’s children. They promised every child to protect and fulfill their rights by adopting an international legal framework – the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. 

This treaty contains a profound idea: children are not just objects belonging to their parents and for whom decisions are made or adults in training. Instead, they are human beings and individuals with their rights. The Convention says childhood is separate from adulthood and lasts until 18; it is a unique, protected time in which children must be allowed to grow, learn, play, develop, and flourish with dignity. The Convention became the most widely ratified human rights treaty in history and has helped transform children’s lives. 

However, not every child can experience a typical childhood. Still, too many kids have their childhoods cut short.

Support Refugees Children to Get Access to Education

One of everyone’s fundamental rights is access to education. Regardless of location or situation, every child has the right to education.

Millions of youngsters and young adults cannot attend school due to the ongoing wars and conflicts worldwide.

Only 61% of refugee children and teens are enrolled 23% in secondary school, and 1% in university education. Also, this is from 2017. The numbers have since deteriorated.

More than 10 million children and adults lack schooling or learning abilities. And what if society as a whole, nonprofits, organizations, or other parties did not provide refugee children with the chance to advance their education? If that is the case, it not only means that we have failed them but also ourselves.

The best gift you can give to refugee children is giving them their right to have the proper education.

You can donate educational supplies, like school stuff, materials, and such.

In Bonyan, we provide all the educational supplies that every child needs on his educational journey.

 Support an Activity Day in School

Activities, especially in schools for refugee children, are essential for their mental health and help them involve other children. Therefore, supporting and working on the consistency of all school activities is essential for children’s physical and mental health and their psychological balance. So be part of this support system, and give a helping hand in any way you can. It all counts and makes a difference in these children’s lives.
