African Child Day

12:00 AM - 11:55 PM

The Day of the African Child has been celebrated on June 16 every year since 1991, when it was first initiated by the OAU Organisation of African Unity. It honours 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.

LHRC joins all Africans to celebrate African Children by creating awareness on the importance of protecting and promoting children's rights.
