Children’s Day Celebrated Worldwide on June 1

It has already been nearly a century since June 1 was proclaimed ‘Children’s Day’ at the ‘World Conference for the Well-being of Children’ in Geneva, Switzerland, in 1925, with the goal of highlighting the needs of children. More and more countries have joined the initiative since its launch, showing their support to youngsters and helping to end the problems they face in society. Children’s Day was universally established in 1954.

Life is fast and busy, and it might be easy for adults to forget children’s sensitivities and needs, and even a smile on a child’s face might hide sadness or pain: it is never easy to grow up and learn to find your place in the world.

Problems typically faced by children, even in the developed and progressive 21st century, are poverty and access to education, particularly in less economically developed countries. The gap between rich and poor can also lead to a number of significant problems, damaging children’s mental health.

June 1 is a day when the many counties worldwide unite with the purpose to help children solve their problems, support them in self-development and to encourage them to live a ‘full life’.

It is also a day to have fun! In Tbilisi children and their parents will be given a wonderful opportunity to enjoy Children’s Day at different venues throughout the city. Shumba-Land is to transform into a magical universe with our favorite cartoon characters. The Basti-Bubu team will also take to the stage at 6pm with a concert. The Hualing Group and Samgori council invite families to join in the fun at Hualing Park, where they will see marching bands, get free balloons, and enjoy face painting, magic shows and games, followed by a concert.

Mtatsminda Park has also prepared a list of entertainment for the guests on June 1, and both Tbilisi Mall and Galleria mall will be hosting children and their parents with unforgettable shows, and lots of sweets and special offers.

If nothing is happening in your town or village, why not think how you can celebrate and help the local children at the same time? Think what they need most, how they would like to have fun, what budget you can spare, and make the magical day happen! Happy Children’s Day!
