Universal Children’s Day

Sunday, November 20th

Involve your congregation in observing Universal Child’s Day! Marking the day on which the Assembly adopted the both the Declaration and the Convention on the Right of the Child (1959 & 1989, respectively), Universal Child’s Day promotes the welfare of children throughout the world. Give your congregation the opportunity to make a difference in child’s life by supporting the UU-UNO’s Every Child is our Child (ECOC) Program which funds the education of orphans and vulnerable children in the region of Ghana with the highest HIV/AIDS rate. The ECOC program directly contributes to the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) of achieving universal primary education, promoting gender equality and combating HIV/AIDS.

We encourage you to make an announcement during your congregation’s November 20th Sunday service and put a few sentences in the newsletter or order of service. In addition, consider setting up an information table with our ECOC program flyers and a laptop to inform the congregation and give them the opportunity to support a child’s education. Donate to the ECOC Program today by clicking here!
