Happy April 23 National Sovereignty and Children’s Day!

The National Sovereignty and Children's Day is celebrated on April 23 in Turkey, making it a particularly unique day. This day is an unique celebration that honors the strength of the nation and the promise of the country's youth, two important facets of Turkish society.

Since young brains are crucial in determining the future of a nation, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder of Turkey, dedicated this day to the country's youngsters in 1920. A crucial turning point in Turkey's struggle for independence, the opening of the Turkish Grand National Assembly on April 23, 1920, is also remembered on this day.
Since then, this day has been observed annually as a way to recognize the sovereignty of the country and the accomplishments and potential of its youth.

It's a day when kids take center stage and the country's leaders pay attention to what they have to say and what they see for the future.

The celebrations on the day feature a variety of initiative.
