World Children’s Day, a global day of action by children, for children, is commemorated globally today, marking the anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. This year, World Children’s Day is taking place during one of the most unique and challenging moments in the world and in Namibia as the coronavirus pandemic has laid bare the deep inequalities in our societies, causing millions of children to miss out on basic healthcare, be cut off from education, and left without protection. The day will be celebrated locally in Gobabis.
