Children Deserve Families: CCCI's 30-Day Social media Campaign to Celebrate Worlds Children Day


World Children's Day, celebrated annually on November 20th, is a global reminder of our collective responsibility to nurture and protect the world's most vulnerable citizens – our children. 


Across the globe, millions of children find themselves living in institutional care due to various circumstances. Family care plays a pivotal role in the healthy development of children. A loving family provides emotional support, stability, and a safe space for children to grow, learn, and thrive. The bonds formed within families are essential for a child's sense of self-worth and connectedness to their community and culture. 
Family is not just a social construct; it is a divine blueprint for human beings to thrive. From the very beginning, in the heart of creation, family was God's original design for humanity. It is a sacred space where love, care, and guidance flow freely, nurturing the physical, emotional, and spiritual growth of children.

Commitment of the UISG-CCCI for a family for every child

Union of International Superiors General (UISG) committed to give a family for every child by initiating -Catholic Care for Children International (CCCI).  As we approach World Children's Day on November 20th, we have the perfect opportunity to shine a light on a critical issue that affects countless young lives worldwide – the importance of family care for children living in institutional settings. 

"One Month of Celebration and Awareness: CCCI's Call to Action"

CCCI launches one-month social media campaign, running from October 20th to November 20th. This is a collaborative effort across the CCC partners in the globe to build awareness about the importance of Family centered/family like care for the children. This inspiring initiative seeks to amplify awareness about the invaluable work carried out in partnership with Catholic Care for Children in Uganda, Zambia, Kenya, Malawi, and Sri Lanka. These dedicated organizations have joined forces, crafting impactful videos, catchy jingles, and compelling posters, in collaboration with stakeholders, partners, universities, church authorities, and government officials. Together, they aspire to make this campaign a resounding success. These messages will subsequently be uploaded across all our social media platforms. The primary goal of this initiative is to reach a broader audience and enhance public awareness regarding the crucial role of a supportive family for every child.

Together we can create a brighter future for the world’s children

This one-month campaign, commemorating World Children's Day, is an opportunity for us to come together as a global community and advocate for the rights of children. By highlighting the importance of family care and the risks of family separation, we can work towards a world where every child grows up in a loving and nurturing environment, surrounded by the warmth and support of their family.


Let's join hands and make a difference in the lives of these children, ensuring they have the opportunity to thrive and reach their full potential.
