World Children's Day 2014

In 1950 the United Nations designed a special day for children which is celebrated world over by different countries in numerous ways.

Sri Lanka too will celebrate World Children’s Day on 1st October 2014 under the theme “Protect us with love” which asserts the importance of children to be properly cared for in love and protected (whether at home or in institutions) (Articles 18-20 of the CRC) so that they grow up to be responsible citizens of the nation. This year’s celebrations of World Children’s Day is of even greater significance as 2014 marks the 25th Anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The emblem of World Children’s Day 2014 is also embodied in the stamp that is issued to mark this day and depicts an innovative toy in the form of a propeller made from a rubber seed and an ice cream stick using natural and widely available materials available to children, that reinforces the right of children to lay, leisure and artistic activities (Article 31 of the CRC) which is one of the most important rights when considering the childhood of all children everywhere.
