Malaysia Children's Day

Malaysia Is Celebrating Children’s Day 2008

Hari Kanak-Kanak Sedunia / World Children’s Day

Perayaan Hari Kanak-Kanak Sedunia telah disambut di Malaysia sejak tahun 1959. Di Malaysia, perayaan ini disambut setiap tahun pada mana-mana hari Sabtu bulan Oktober.

Pada dasarnya, Hari Kanak-Kanak Sedunia mempunyai dua objektif utama iaitu:

~ merupakan penghormatan dan pengiktirafan masyarakat terhadap kanak-kanak dan hak-hak mereka

~ menyedarkan setiap golongan masyarakat akan tanggungjawab mereka dalam memelihara hak dan masa depan kanak-kanak

Persatuan Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak Sabah telah dipertanggingjawabkan oleh Kementerian Pembangunan Masyarakat dan Hal Ehwal Pengguna & Majlis Perkhidmatan Masyarakat Sabah untuk menganjurkan perayaan Hari Kanak-Kanak Sedunia di peringkat Negeri untuk beberapa tahun sejak tahun 1996.

Selain mengadakan perayaan Hari Kanak-Kanak Sedunia di peringkat Negeri, kerajaan juga dikehendaki menyertai perhimpunan Perayaan Kanak-Kanak Sedunia di peringkat Kebangsaan yang biasanya diadakan di Semenanjung Malaysia.

There are no seven wonders of the world in the eyes of a child.  There are seven million. ~ Walt Streightiff ~

The World Children’s Day Celebration was the brainchild of the International Union for Child Welfare of the United Nations. The first celebration was in 1953 where 40 countries participated. In 1954, the United Nations approved the celebration and UNICEF was given the responsibility to manage the celebration. Malaysia first celebrated World Children’s Day in 1959. Now, over 150 countries in the world celebrate World Children’s Day.

The purpose of the celebration is to create awareness of the responsibilities of all members of society especially parents, private and public agencies have to protect the rights and the future of children as well as to enable members of the public to appreciate the need to uphold the rights and dignity of children in accordance with the rights as accorded to them by the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The State level World Children’s Day celebration is held in October each year in conjunction with the National celebration.
