Today is Children's Day in Several Countries

Emilia Gomez, UMA student from San Salvador, El Salvador, says, “In my country, (today) is ‘The Day of the Child’ - all the Schools make parties for their kindergarten (preschool) students. We are going to celebrate until Friday. It will be nice!”

Children’s Day was first celebrated worldwide in October, 1953, under the sponsorship of International Union for Child Welfare, Geneva. Basically this day was instituted with the sole aim of promoting communal exchange and understanding among children, as well as to bring about beneficiary action to promote the welfare of children, all over the globe. Children’s Day is celebrated worldwide on different days of the year, depending upon the country. Today, October 1st, Children’s Day is celebrated in El Salvador, Guatemala, Singapore, and Sri Lanka.

Thank you Emilia for sharing this with the UMA community!

Happy Children’s Day!
