International Children's Protection Day was established 62 years ago in Paris by the Congress of the International Democratic Women's Federation and was first celebrated in 1950. International Children's Protection Day - designed to draw people's attention to the problems faced by children around the world. In addition, children are dedicated to the World Children's Day (November 20), the International Day of Innocent Children - victims of aggression (June 4) and Children's Day in Africa (June 16). At the level of international law, the main document is the Convention on the Rights of the Child, adopted by the UN on November 20, 1989. Children are the most precious and important thing in the life of every human being! Their future and the future of the whole country and the world depend on our upbringing, care and love. Take care of your children!

Every year June 1, the world celebrates International Children's Protection Day, and Tajikistan is one of them. The Convention on the Rights of the Child is one of the first conventions ratified by the Republic of Tajikistan since its independence, and has demonstrated its true commitment to the younger generation as the country's bright future. The Convention on the Rights of the Child is the main international instrument enshrining all the rights of the child. The Convention was adopted by the UN General Assembly on 20 November 1989 and ratified almost in all countries of the world, which demonstrates that the international community attaches great importance to the problems of children. The Republic of Tajikistan ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1993 and undertook to implement the principles enshrined in the Convention.

All children's rights and freedoms are reflected in the Declaration of the Rights of the Child, which was adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1959. It proclaims the equal rights of children in the field of upbringing, education, social welfare, physical and spiritual development, regardless of color, nationality, social origin, property status, etc. The International Children's Day has a flag. On a green background symbolizing growth, harmony, freshness and fertility, stylized figures - red, yellow, blue, white and black - are placed around the sign of the Earth. These human figures symbolize diversity and tolerance. The Earth sign, placed in the center, is a symbol of our common home. Children in different countries face different problems. For example, in Europe and America, the negative impact of television and the Internet is considered a big problem. But in Africa and Asia, children are threatened by hunger, AIDS, military conflicts, and illiteracy. Children there die from a lack of doctors and medicine. Not surprisingly, child mortality rates are many times higher in such countries. In addition, they do not receive the necessary education because of the lack of educational facilities. In some countries, children are used as free labor and even sold into slavery.

All over the world there are charitable foundations that carry out various actions aimed at improving the lives of children. They raise funds to help lonely children all over the world. After all, every child has the right to a happy childhood. Such a foundation is UNICEF, which was established in 1946. The main purpose of its creation was to help children who suffered during World War II. Since 1953, this organization began to provide charitable assistance to children around the world who found themselves in difficult situations. Special attention is given to children from disadvantaged and developing countries. It should be noted that this organization depends entirely on voluntary donations for its funding. The actions of modern government agencies are aimed at improving the situation of children around the world. Thus, thanks to active and successful activity of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) the situation of children in the last ten years has greatly improved, 100 thousand children's lives have been saved and millions of children have had a decent childhood. We must clearly understand that with the opening of every new school, children's clinic, hospital, or orphanage, the future of the entire planet is being built.
