 This particular program was organized on 19th of June at Garchuk 1 by My City Initiative, Guwahati, World Vision  to celebrate the birthday of all underprivileged sponsored and non sponsored children.

This is a celebration which World Vision celebrates every year with the children. The theme this year for the celebration is ‘Birth Registration’ of every child.

It has been found that many of the children do not have birth certificate and also the parents are ignorant and also do not understand the importance of having such a certificate for their children. So this programme is to celebrate the birthdays of the children together and at the same time communicate the message to the parents, community leaders, and the line departments (ASHA, AWW) so that they will understand their roles and help in supporting the children with this basic right.

Dr. Mebada Wanka, DME Manager, My city Initiative, Guwahati (World Vision India), said “that having a birth certificate is very essential and important for every child and it is not just having a certificate but also the children should know their date of birth. It is their basic right and every member in the society need to play a role in providing this basic right for the children”.

“ UNO has recommended complete abolition of child labour, but India being a developing country with economic hurdles is yet to overcome this menace which we quite often see in different nooks and corners of our cities and towns. I, therefore, would like to appeal  Child Rigths Protection organizations, NGOs, INGOs to come forward with more enthusiasm and with a spirit to serve selflessly to facilitate a plateform whereby maximum number of children could be rescued and could be introduced to schools”, said Mr. Swapnav (Mausam) Jyoti Baishya Saud, Advocate, Gauhati  High Court and PRO, THE MILEAGE on the occasion.


The programme was a colourful one as the children took part in different activities such as games where the children enjoyed by playing together, older children took part in short essay writing on Child Rights and importance of Birth Registration. But the most exciting one was the CAKE CUTTING where all the children sang the birthday song together which otherwise they never got the opportunity to celebrate in their own families.

The children expressed that they appreciate the idea of coming together and celebrating along with their friends who could never celebrate their birthdays at home. It was a joy which they will remember and thanked World Vision for caring for them and for the gift that they received.
