May 15 is International Day of Families

International Day of Families is celebrated at the United Nations headquarters and around the world. It’s a day that is dedicated to reminding us of the important role that families play in society.

This year, the theme of families, education and well-being, serves to:
• promote the education and overall well-being of families and all their members;
• raise awareness of the role of the family in promoting early childhood education and lifelong learning opportunities for children and youth; and
• highlight the key role of caregivers and the importance of parental education to the welfare of the child.
