In 1954 the Assembly of the United Nations (UN) made a recommendation to all the countries to establish a day in order to celebrate the Universal Children’s Day , and since that day, it has been dedicated to reaffirm the rights of the children.
Each country chose a date and a different way for celebrating it; but its meaning remains the same. For example in Bolivia is celebrated on April 12, in Paraguay on May 31, in Uruguay is August 9, while in Ecuador is celebrated on June 1 with an agenda of activities for all tastes.
