Iconic Raj Bhavan and west wing of Vidhan Sabha in Jharkhand Go Blue in support of child rights 

Ranchi, Jharkhand  | November | 20,  2021 ::  The COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented disruptions to children’s education, with schools closed for long periods across India. Children are losing a lot more than just education – they have lost time with their teachers and friends, nutritious school meals and in some cases – a safe haven that prevents abuse and violence.

As the world commemorates the 32 years of the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) on 20 November, on this World Children’s Day (WCD), UNICEF India will put the spotlight on prioritizing safe reopening of schools and learning.

To support the cause of children, iconic buildings such as Raj Bhavan and the West wing of New Vidhan Sabha in Ranchi, Jharkhand will be lit up in blue lights on 19-20 November, signifying the state-wide celebration of child rights and to put the spotlight on Learning Recovery and Child Rights.

This year to show solidarity with child rights, the Raj Bhavan and West Wing of Vidhan Sabha has been illuminated with blue lights on the 32nd anniversary of the Convention of the Rights of the Child. This is a day where children are given the spotlight to share about their experiences and express themselves. It is an opportunity when everyone can spread awareness about child rights not just on World Children’s Day, but every year.
