The Planning Committee of the World Day of Prayer and Action for Children introduces new logo.

DPAC Logo

The logo for the World Day of Prayer and Action for Children features a stylized image of a child painting a rainbow in the sky. The rainbow in the design symbolizes the beautiful diversity of the human family; the many colors unite in a single rainbow to express the universal hope that all children will one day be able to grow to their full potential in a peaceful world. The child in the design is taking creative action to produce the rainbow, representing the inspired work of people of good will everywhere — especially the efforts of children and young people — to build a world fit for children. The logo is meant to serve as a daily reminder of the spirit and vision of the World Day of Prayer and Action for Children.

Planning Committee for the World Day of Prayer and Action for Children was convened in Geneva, Switzerland 8-9 June 2010. The Committee discussed various topics to help facilitate the planning of the World Day in 2010.
