September 17 – Honduran Teacher’s Day

September 10 – Honduran Children’s Day

In Honduras, the Day of the Child is celebrated on September 10th. It is a celebration that is deeply rooted in the country’s popular culture.

To celebrate this day for the little ones, kindergartens and elementary schools in Honduras organize activities such as piñatas and cake. Politicians take the opportunity to give out toys and piñatas and have their photos taken with these important figures for the future of a nation. Families also go out together to shopping centers to eat and enjoy their time together.

The celebration of the Day of the Child in Honduras is derived from the Geneva Declaration, which was approved in 1924 by the League of Nations to recognize the rights of all children worldwide and establish Universal Children’s Day on November 20th.

However, in 1954, the United Nations General Assembly, through Resolution 836 (IX) on December 14th, recommended that each country establish a Universal Children’s Day but choose its own date for celebration.

In this context, on May 31st, 1990, Honduras ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child through Decree No. 75-90, which encompasses the essential principles to ensure the overall well-being of children, and designated September 10th as the Day of the Child.

To further strengthen the cause, four years later, in 1996, the Code of Childhood and Adolescence was approved in the country with the aim of generating comprehensive protection for children in line with the principles enshrined in the Constitution and the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
