Dear children and dear parents,
I sincerely congratulate you on the brightest and bright holiday of the world on the International Children’s Day. Every adult wants to do the utmost that your childhood be healthy, careless and safe, so that each of you can get a full education and have the opportunity to accomplish his most beloved dreams.
I want you to live in an inclusive society, be socially protected and be able to use your right to education.
In our society, violence against a child should not be registered, and sexually-terminated pregnancies deny all layers of the society. Unfortunately, we still have a lot to do in terms of these issues. In Armenia, however, the number of sexually-aborted interruptions remains problematic, and according to the Armenian Demographic and Health Survey, seven out of ten children aged 1-14 have been subjected to psychological or physical punishment within 30 days prior to the survey. These are statistical facts that are quite serious concerns about which we must work and change the reality, making it brighter, more positive and more dignified.
I also especially congratulate you, my beloved parents, because the mission of surrounding children with a warm, healthy spirit and a dignified generation is on your shoulders.
Once again congratulating you on the holiday, I wish you my little friends and heavenless childhood.
