International Family Day History

International Day of Families serves to celebrate the vital role of families in societies worldwide and raise awareness of issues and challenges faced by families across the globe. Recognizing the importance of families as essential building blocks of society, this day aims to promote understanding, cooperation, and support for families in their crucial function of nurturing and sustaining generations.

Established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1993, International Day of Families is inspired by the key objectives of the International Year of the Family held in 1994. It promotes and supports the United Nations' global initiative for ensuring the well-being of families, in line with the social development goals set forth by the organization. Each year, the day focuses on a specific theme, highlighting critical aspects of family life, such as social security, work-family balance, and gender equality, to name a few.

International Day of Families in India invites individuals, groups, and communities around the world to engage in efforts aimed at strengthening families and promoting their welfare. In India, as elsewhere, this day offers an opportunity to reflect on and cherish the bonds that give meaning and purpose to our lives. International Day of Families is celebrated on May 15 each year.
