All over the world, an increasing number of children are engaged in paid or unpaid domestic work, often in dangerous conditions.
Children's Day is a commemorative date celebrated annually in honor of children, whose date of observance varies by country. In 1925, International Children's Day was first proclaimed in Geneva during the World Conference on Child Welfare.
An International Day for Protection of Children is celebrated on 1 June every year. The day is marked to honor these young people globally for their right to survival, to develop, protection from harmful influences, and to participate in family, cultural and social life. It is, however, observed only in a few countries across the globe.
