World Children’s Day 2018

Today, once again, the world is celebrating United Nation’s very important declaration that ‘mankind owes to the child the best it has to give.’ Children are the most important part of this world. They bring joy into homes, have the purest of souls, and their smile could light up anyone’s mood. 64 years ago, United Nations formally declared Children’s Day as an international event which was followed by the Declaration of the Rights of the Child and the legislation adoption thereafter on 20th November 1959.
