Cuba Celebrated International Children’s Day

Countless celebrations ‘cause of International Children’s Day were hold in all elementary and secondary schools, parks, museums, plazas, and many other places over the whole island.

The program of the Jose Marti Pioneer Children’s Organization of Cuba (OPJM) included cultural and sports activities, and exhibitions of the Cuban Movement of Pioneer Children Scouts.

Our children and adolescents sent a message of love, joy, and faith in a better world, from Cuba, a mainstay of children’s hope and protection.

On a date like this, Cuba has the rare privilege to further improve the children’s quality of life and, against all odds, defend their rights, which are equally guaranteed to all of them, even before they are born.

It was scheduled to take place to mark the date, and prior to the celebration of Children’s Day in Cuba on July 17, is the 19th National Festival of Children’s Songs ‘Cantandole al Sol’.

The Pioneer Children Scouts will also carry out reforestation actions in all the provinces of the country as part of a series of activities to mark the World Environment Day on June 5.

The World Conference for the Well-being of Children in Geneva, Switzerland, proclaimed June 1 as International Children’s Day in 1925.
