In celebration of UNICEF’s World Children’s Day tomorrow [Nov 20], Family Centre is raising awareness of “adverse childhood experiences [ACEs]“.
A spokesperson said, “World Children’s Day is celebrated annually on November 20th. This was the date in 1959 when the UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child.
“On the same day in 1989, the UN General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The intention of this important day is to highlight the need to improve the welfare of children around the world and to promote the rights of children.
