International Day of Families

International Family Day History

The International Day of Families, observed on May 15 each year, 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, the observance of this day aims to promote understanding, cooperation, and support for families in their crucial function of nurturing and sustaining generations. India, a land of diverse cultures and traditions, values the institution of family as a key aspect of its social fabric, making the observance of International Day of Families highly significant for its people.

Established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1993, the 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.

This year, the International Day of Families will be celebrated on May 15 with the theme of "Families and New Technologies." Calling attention to the essential role of digital technologies in contemporary family life and emphasizing the need to bridge the digital divide, the event 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.
