Tomorrow is World Children's Day, the United Nations' annual day to promote, celebrate, and advocate for Children's Rights.
Here in Grand Bahama, a local nonprofit called Our Sanctuary, is collaborating with a well-known U.S. based nonprofit Paving The Way, under the theme "Lights on For Children" to honor and promote our Children's Rights on a local front.
Our Sanctuary is inviting all Bahamians to light a blue light tomorrow on World Children's Day. The color blue is symbolic of celebrating this day.
Our Sanctuary and Paving The Way in Florida are shining blue lights tomorrow. The organization is calling businesses and members of the community to light a blue light, as this organization continues its work to advocate to end sexual abuse, exploitation, and trafficking of children in The Bahamas.
Some local businesses have already joined the effort by lighting blue lights.
