Children and young people are disproportionately affected by some of the world’s hardest issues. Currently, an estimated 333 million children live in extreme poverty, without the food, sanitation, shelter, healthcare and education they need to survive and thrive.
As a children's charity, World Vision supports this important day for encouraging children to raise their voices on the issues impacting them. Learn more about how we're helping children fulfil their potential and how you can get involved.
What is World Children's Day?
World Children’s Day is a day of action focusing on improving the lives of children around the world.
From social media campaigns to debates between leaders and figureheads, UNICEF describes the day as a “day of action for children, by children”. You can get involved in World Children’s Day activities by campaigning for change and supporting children’s charities that focus on tackling child protection concerns.
