Birthday of 3,700 disadvantaged children celebrated in Rangpur

World Vision Bangladesh, (WVB), an NGO, celebrated the symbolic 'Birthday' of 3,700 of disadvantaged children in a function held at a local community centre on Sunday afternoon in the city.

"WVB has been successfully conducting development activities on child welfare since 2013 with overall support of all quarters in wards 17, 18, 23, 24, 25, 26 and 27 under Rangpur City Corporation (RpCC)," a press release said.

Every year, the Rangpur Area Program of WVB celebrates token 'Birthday' of underprivileged children of the beneficiary families of different development programs with their parents and local people.

"It is not a specific birthday of any child, but it is celebrated symbolically in public, especially for families who are unable to celebrate their child's birthday," the release said.

According to Article 7 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the birth of a child must be registered soon and the child should grow up in his or her own name.

"Through the birthday celebration program, children and their parents will understand the importance of the child's growth with age and learn about some of the 'happy moments' in a child's life," the release added.

Rangpur Sadar Upazila Nirbahi Officer Nur Nahar Begum attended the program as the chief guest with Rangpur Area Program Cluster (APC) Manager of WVB Anukul Chondro Bormon in the chair. The chief guest said that every child must grow up with his or her correct birth identity and must have proper birth registration. All children should be sent to school regularly to prevent them from dropping out and parents must be discouraged from child marriage.

"I especially thank World Vision Bangladesh for celebrating the symbolic "Birthday' of 3,700 disadvantaged children," she added.

Anukul Chondro Bormon said that since the teaching in classes has started a new, every child should go to school. He assured of ensuring proper birth registration of each child of the beneficiary families of different development programs of WVB to assist the children to grow well with their own beautiful names and identities.
