Red Hand Day

February 12th marks Red Hand Day, an internationally recognized occasion that aims to raise awareness about child soldiers, also known as the International Day against the Use of Child Soldiers.

During Red Hand Day, there is a call to political leaders to halt the recruitment and use of child soldiers. Events across the globe are organized to bring attention to the plight of child soldiers, referring to children under 18 involved in military organizations, often left with lasting psychological and physical scars from their experiences.

Additionally, Red Hand Day provides an opportunity to engage students in discussions about war and the importance of building peace. Empathy-building exercises can help students envision the challenges faced by those recruited to fight in wars.
