While still a little-known fact, since 2018, May 16th has been observed as World Day of the Boy Child. It is growing in popularity in parts of India, North America, the Caribbean and on the African continent.
The observance was established by Dr. Jerome Teelucksingh, a university lecturer from the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, who is well known as the catalyst behind the global recognition of 19th November as International Men's Day.
Below is a trailer of Dr Teelucksingh introducing the theme for World Day of the Boy Child 2021.
