November 20 is Universal Children’s Day, a day to celebrate the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. This day provides an excellent opportunity for all of us to strengthen our commitment to build a better world - a world in which the best interests of children are the primary concern of all.
We are pleased to commemorate Children's Day with the students at École Boréal in Abasand.

Open Statement By Beverley Makia
Managing Director - Layla Isaac Foundation
The holiday season gives us meaning, comfort, familiarity, and connection to others. However, when life in a community continues to be impacted by a disaster, the experience of the season can be profoundly altered. For this reason, we created a free, multi-day festival to enliven the season and promote the spirit of community that binds us together.
Winter is coming... Oftentimes the weather is just too cold for outdoor play. So we bring the fun indoors at Winter PlayDays - a series of free, consecutive weekly pop-up play experiences designed especially for you and your child.
Children spend 1.4 years of school time on recess before they graduate elementary school. Recess is valuable time to engage children in hands-on learning and enriched exploration through play. We are designing new solutions to help schools maximize the power of play.
