Commit to fulfilling the rights of every child: UNICEF on World Children's Day
The World Children's Day was observed on November 20 across the world coordinated by UNICEF with the theme 'Go blue for every child'. Consequently, many global landmarks were lighted blue. Children conducted mock parliaments and children appeared on news channels, television programmes and radio stations across the globe.

Millie Bobby Brown was named as UNICEF's youngest-ever Goodwill Ambassador.  UNICEF urged people saying, "World Children's Day – on 20 November – is a global day of action 'for children, by children.' Marking the anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, it's a fun day with a serious message. Join UNICEF's global petition asking leaders to commit to fulfilling the rights of every child and #GoBlue on the day to show your support."

In Delhi, UNICEF brand ambassador, Sachin Tendulkar took part in a panel discussion and  played an exhibition football match with children at the Thyagaraj Sport Complex here.

He batted for inclusion of sports in school curriculum since it would help in the overall development of children. He was of the view that sports develop a sense of responsibility, team spirit and cooperation as value. According to him, 'when sports and education go together, it creates harmony. I would like to see sports included in all schools and make it mandatory.'

He advised children to give importance to hygiene, sanitation and health. He asked them to be polite and respect elders.
