The United Nations has designated 2021 as the International Year of Peace and Trust.
The International Family Day was proclaimed in 1993 by the General Assembly of the United Nations in its resolution echoing the importance the international community attaches to the family. This day is an occasion to promote awareness and better understanding of the social, economic, and demographic processes affecting this important unit of society.
Families around the world are changing, many becoming smaller, as the number of single-parent households grows. Currently, 65% of all families are made up of either couples living with children of any age, or couples living with both children and extended family members, such as grandparents. The diminishing number of extended families and the increasing number of single-parent families put into sharp focus the issue of social protection.
