The theme for this year’s celebration is “Education, a Right for all Children “. Since its inception, the National Children’s Day, presents the opportunity to reflect on progress made within the year and also creates the platform for partners and stakeholders working with and for children to come together and reaffirm commitment to the protection and development of children.

Delivering her Statement, Hon. Otiko Afisah Djaba made a key remark that this year, under President Nana Addo, government is making a very bold statement of intent by introducing the FREE-SHS Programme to remove all financial barriers which prevent any child in Ghana from having a good education at the SHS level.
