INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE AFRICAN CHILD

Date : 16th June

International Day of the African Child takes place on June 16th. The Day of the African Child has been celebrated every year since 1991, when it was first initiated by the Organisation of African Unity. It honors those who participated in the Soweto Uprising in 1976 on that day. It also raises awareness of the continuing need for improvement of the education provided to African children.
