Resources for Youth
Children and young people are a major part of the World Day of Prayer and Action for Children. The following resources are provided especially to help youth and children plan and organize World Day events. Join the global movement for children with your friends!
What is the World Day of Prayer and Action for Children?
The World Day is a movement of people all over the world who pray and take action for the well-being of children on Universal Children's Day (20 November) every year. The World Day Secretariat in New York City is the enabling organization. All events are planned by local leaders, and are inspired by the United Nations Convention on the Rights. The new theme for 2011-2013 is "Stop Violence Against Children."
Strategy on Child/ Youth Participation
We firmly believe that we need to work with children and youth through inclusive ways. The World Day of Prayer and Action for Children hopes to empower children and youth in areas of learning about human rights and effort to ending violence.
