Children take over Malaysian media

About 20 children are to ‘takeover’ the Malaysian media on World Children’s Day held every Nov 20.

The event was announced at a media conference, organised by United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Malaysia and its partner Kakiseni.

UNICEF’s Representative to Malaysia, Marianne Clark-Hattingh said over 20 children, including those with disabilities would take part to appear across 18 media stations such as Astro, BFM, IM4U radio channel, Media Prima Radio Networks, RTM TV and Radio, Star Media Group.

“When given the opportunity, Malaysian children evidently know what they want from the society, they know what they want to see and build for the future, namely a quality education, an end to violence and bullying, safety, no racism.

“On the World Children’s Day, you will see and hear children sending messages of hopes throughout the day as soon as you watch a TV, read a newspaper, go online, or switch on a radio,” said Marianne.

The objective of media presence of these children across major media outlets on Nov 20 is to signify their intention to be heard and to speak about what matters to them.

World Children’s Day, also known as Universal Children’s Day, was established by the United Nations General Assembly on Nov 20, 1989 as a day to celebrate the state of children’s welfare.
