Antigua and Barbuda: Prime Minister Gaston Browne extended warm wishes on the occasion of International Children’s Day. He spent his day with the little children of Green Bay Primary School and shared glimpses of the celebration on his Facebook account. 

PM Gaston Browne stated that as they join the international community in celebrating International Children’s Day under the theme, “Inclusion, for every child”, they are reminded of the pleasant visit paid to the Office of the Prime Minister by kindergarten students of the Green Bay Primary School in October. 

Over twenty (20) students received the opportunity to visit the Prime Minister’s Office, where both Minister Melford Nicholas and Minister E.P Chet Greene joined Prime Minister Gaston Browne for the interactive meet and greet. During their visit, the excited students received snacks and toys as they spoke about their class activities.

The theme for International Children’s Day this year means that every child belonging to any society, community, or nationality is entitled to equal rights. It also emphasizes the eradication of discrimination among children of various civilizations. Not only general rights, but a global society welcomes and offers space to children.

World Children’s Day, also known as Universal Children’s Day, is observed every year on November 20. It was created to encourage children’s unity and worldwide awareness. This year will be no exception as we celebrate our kids under the theme, “Inclusion, For Every Child.”

World Children’s Day was first established in 1954 as Universal Children’s Day and is celebrated on November 20 each year to promote international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide, and improving children’s welfare.

Each year, November 20 reminds us that humanity must give children the best it can provide. This day reminds us of the necessity of acting in favour of the well-being of children in the whole wide world.

Every time a child is saved from the dark side of life, every time one of us makes the effort to make a difference in a child’s life, we add light and healing to our own lives.

One way to unburden kids from the past and empower them to change the future is to make history intriguing and personal for young readers.
