National Children's Day


Historical Background:
Ratnarajya Laxmidevi Shah, during her visit to India, saw that Children's Day was celebrated in India on the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, and came back to celebrate a special national day for children at the state level in Nepal as well. Inspired by this intention, National Children's Day was started on Bhadra 4, her birthday. In B.S 2021, National Children's Day was celebrated for the first time in Nepal. The year 2080 B.S is witnessing the 59th episode of National children day.

Children's Day on the 29th of Bhadra
Gradually, along with the change in the governance system in Nepal, the date of celebrating Children's Day also changed. Nepal has been celebrating National Children's Day every year on Bhadra 29, on the occasion of the ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child 1989 on 14 September 1990.

What are child rights?
Children's rights are a combination of children's rights to live, develop, get protection, express their opinions, have the right to make policy decisions about themselves and participate in social activities in a meaningful way.

Convention on the Rights of the Child:
The Convention on the Rights of the Child is a common agreement among states on the rights of children, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on November 20, 1989. Child rights are not limited to ideals and declarations, but this convention has been interpreted to give it a practical form of child development. Nepal has approved it on September 14, 1990. Along with today's changing times, children's rights have been included in the basic law of the country.

Meaningful wishes on this day

Hamro Patro - Connecting Nepali Communities
Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
