Beyond the celebrations, it is also a day in which organisations analyse the plight of children in the society and the efforts by government and non-government agencies to improve their welfare.
In recent times, issues such as child labour, kidnapping, molestation among others, which have led to an increasing number of out of school children have been on the front burner with child rights activists intensifying efforts to give children a voice.
Meanwhile, as part of efforts to celebrate the children, Channels Television is hosting the finale of its Corporate Social Responsibility Programme, the Channels International Kids Cup, today.
