The International Day of the African Child, also known as the Day of the African Child, has been celebrated on June 16 every year since 1991, when it was first initiated by the OAU Organisation of African Unity. It honors those who participated in the Soweto Uprising in 1976 on that day.


The African Union plays a crucial role in supporting education in Africa. Through initiatives like Agenda 2063, the African Union aims to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education for all.
