HUGGS CELEBRATES CHILDREN’S DAY
November 14 is Children’s Day in India. The birthday of India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru was designated Children’s Day because of his great love for children. He welcomed children at his public meetings and often spent time talking with them in the midst of his leadership duties.
Nehru said, "Children … should be carefully and lovingly nurtured, as they are the future of the nation and the citizens of tomorrow....Only through right education can a better order of society be built up.” HUGGS contributes significantly towards educating children. 75% of current HUGGS students are 18 years old or younger. They begin their journey with HUGGS with the innocence of childhood, and graduate six years later as mature young adults ready to take on the world.
November also marks the United Nations’ Universal Children’s Day on the 20th.
