This day is declared as holiday only for children. Universal Children day was established in year 1954. 20th November is also a special day as this day ‘Declaration of the rights of the children’ was adopted by UN General Assembly in 1959 and later in 1989, Conventionof the Rights of the child is adopted by UN General Assembly. Since the last decade, this Convention is said to be an important tool for promoting the rights of children all over the world. Still, there are few countries like Australia and India which chooses different dates every year to celebrate Universal Children’s day. This day is not only special for children, but also special for parents as every parent try to spend most of the time on this day with his children either on home or any trips like Zoo or Museum.
After discussing the Introduction and brief History of Universal Children day, lets move on tohow this day is celebrated like what activities or events or programs are arranged on this day. Special activitiesandprograms are arranged all over the world. These programs differs from country to country but the objective is same everywhere.

After speaking about the different celebrations of ‘Universal Children day’ in different countries, my next topic is to discuss 2009 Universal Children Day, its topics and discussions. The International Committee of Red Cross has introduced a new brochure on children andwar. This brochure will also examine the risks faced by children who caught up in armed conflict. Also the stepsare taken to address the children specific needs and the rules of law defined to protect them. Also the topics was discussed that more than 300 million students attend their school without safe drinking water and access to a clean toilet. This affects the student heath andcauses diseases among them.Though, some solution of thisproblem also discussed as GWC (Global Water challenge)will support school program that will provide clean water for drinking and sanitation purpose. GWC also provides solution for that school, which lacks access to water by the use of Rainwater Harvesting.
