Children's Day 2015

Children’s Day

In Indonesia, Children’s Day (Hari Anak Nasional) is celebrated on July 23. Today, around three hundred and fifty thousand children will open their eyes for the very first time. They’ll arrive from all over, but will eventually learn a universal language: one of surprise, fascination, fear, joy and hope.
