Published on

Observances of the UN Global Day of Parents, June 1.

UPF recalls the purposes and principles of the United Nations as set forth in its Charter, expressing resolve to promote social progress and better standards of living in larger freedom, with a view to the creation of conditions of stability and well-being.

UPF recognizes that the family has the primary responsibility for the nurturing and protection of children and that the children, for the full and harmonious development of their personality, should grow up in a family environment and in an atmosphere of happiness, harmony, love, and understanding.

UPF is aware of the role of parents everywhere as the primary caregivers and teachers of their children, setting the foundation for success in life. It also recognizes that parenthood requires sacrifice, steadfast love and support, and a commitment to the education of children, our most precious resource for the future.

UPF is appreciative of parents of every race, religion, nationality, and culture the world over for their commitment and acknowledges that parents are the anchors of the family, the cornerstone of society,

Conscious of the fact that the task of good, responsible parenting is of immeasurable importance to promote social and sustainable development and achieving the Millennium Development Goals, UPF encourages Member States, government officials, religious leaders, academe, and members of civil society to celebrate the Global Day of Parents each year, honoring parents throughout the world, recognizing that we form one global family.
