Message from
Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan
On the occasion of
World Children’s Day
(20th November, 2021)

******

I am pleased to note that Pakistan joins the world community today in celebrating the World Children’s Day 2021. This year’s theme “A Better Future for Every Child”, reaffirms our commitments to the children of Pakistan.

In line with our manifesto, our policies are aimed at future generations. Our Government is determined to ensure that every child’s rights including development, education, healthcare, participation, dignity and security are upheld. In order to ensure protection of children’s rights, our government established “National Commission of the Rights of Child” and the “Zainab Alert Response and Recovery Agency”. Child Protection Institutes are being established and various legislations are being introduced to eliminate child labour. 

Other welfare measures also cater for children include nutrition support to malnourished children, universal health care through Health Cards. We have also introduced single national curriculum. Moreover, social welfare programs through Ehsaas provide social safety to children against poverty. Most important of all, Clean & Green Pakistan” has been initiated keeping in view our future generation.

On this day, let us reaffirm our pledge for protection of the rights of children in Pakistan and to provide them with equal opportunities to become productive citizens of Pakistan.

Pakistan Paindabad.
