November 20th, 2021 was National Child Day
Each year, we celebrate National Child Day to demonstrate our commitment to preserving infant and children's rights to be treated with dignity and respect, to have their basic needs met, to be protected from harm, and to have their voices heard.
This commitment is not just a one-day celebration for us at Kids Kottage. It represents the very reasons we exist. It is what our values are based on, and it is the reason we are dedicated to providing a safe space for infants and children. We believe every child deserves to be safe and that every child has rights that need to be protected.
When it comes to family crises, children are the hidden victims,
and they need us now more than ever.
We weren't the only ones celebrating! We have received messages from Government officials and other influential leaders within our community expressing what this day means to them.
A Letter from the Desk of Janine Fraser
Executive Director of Kids Kottage Foundation
Hello, and Happy National Child Day!
Thank you for celebrating National Child Day with us as we recognize that all infants and children have a voice. This day presents an opportunity for us to reaffirm our collective commitment to the safety of all vulnerable infants and children. They deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, to be protected from harm, and to have their human rights upheld. They have the right to survive and thrive as citizens.
At Kids Kottage, National Child Day is not a one-day commemoration. It is the source of our values, and it is the very reason we exist.
All infants and children have the right to survive and thrive, and we must ensure their human rights are preserved.
Thank you to each individual who took time out of their busy schedule to recognize the importance of National Child Day, and for taking a stand for the rights of infants and children. We are so grateful for your support, and it’s because of people like you that Kids Kottage Foundation is able to fight for the rights of the most vulnerable among us.
Take good care and stay well,
Executive Director, Kids Kottage Foundation
