The Havana-based Ernesto Che Guevara Pioneer Children’s Palace hosts the celebrations with the opening of an exhibit of its children’s club. The palace leads vocational work in different modalities aimed at achieving integral formation of the new generations of Cubans in different social sectors, an initiative launched by Cuban Revolution leader Fidel Castro. The entity will mark its 30th anniversary next June 15.

The UN General Assembly agreed in December 1954 to annually mark International Children’s Day, an occasion to celebrate brotherhood and understanding among all children of the world, on a day picked by each country; Cuba, like many other nations, chose June 1.

The exhibit at the Pioneer Children’s Palace is considered a gift of the talent, knowledge and abilities of some 420 children picked among over 38, 000 ninth and fourth graders who have taken three vocational courses at the center this school year.

The exhibit, that will run until next Thursday, will offer the public a chance to participate in the initiative and learn about over 150 specialties and varied cultural, sports and recreational activities.

The renowned ‘La Colmenita’ Children’s Theater Company will join celebrations that reveal the happiness and joy conquered by Cuban children, who count on full protection and enjoyment of their rights in Cuba.

From the Ernesto Che Guevara Children’s Palace, Cuba’s Jose Marti Pioneer Children Organization will call its more than 1, 200, 000 members to a large program of actions until next November in the context of the 20th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
