“Mankind owes to the Child the best that it has to give.”

With these powerful words in its opening preamble, the Declaration of the Rights of the Child was adopted by the UN General Assembly on November 20th, 1959, marking the first international consensus on children’s rights. World Children’s Day is now held on November 20th every year and promotes the welfare and happiness of all children.

One of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s goals is for every child worldwide to have access to an education and be able to attend school. And among the 10 Principles of the Declaration of the Rights of the Child were the right to be loved by parents and society, the right to adequate nutrition, the right to protection, and the right to recreation and a free education.

It is only fitting that recreation and education were included in the same basic right for children that learning is. Here at Quizlet, we aim to empower students by helping them see learning as fun and engaging instead of monotonous or stressful.

As part of our celebration of World Children’s Day, we are excited to launch the UNICEF Quizlet page where you can learn the 10 Principles of the Declaration of the Rights of the Child and explore UNICEF’s 17 Global Goals.

Please follow UNICEF on Twitter and Facebook for more information on how you can engage and give back on this important day. It’s a #KidsTakeOver kind of day!
