Who Celebrates the World Day?
World Day Observance in India
India’s World Day Observance, through awareness programs and activities for children, will focus on the sub-themes of child protection and violence against girls. A resulting Week of Action will begin on the 14th and culminate on 20 November with the World Day of Prayer and Action for Children.
As a part of the activities, a region-wide “Youth Voices on Child Poverty” competition will be held, where children and youth will be invited to submit essays, photography and video clips related to Child Poverty, which is the theme of the GNRC Fourth Forum to be held in June 2012. Winners will be announced on November 20, 2011 to coincide with the World Day.
World Day 2011 initiativies will target 15,000 children from all parts of India.
