Saba TV in Kabul, Afghanistan focuses on children’s rights for the ICDB


The Saba Media Organization (SMO)’s Saba TV in Kabul, Afghanistan has celebrated the ICDB this year by producing a 26-minute long children’s program. We received this description of the show from Taj Mohammad Bassiry:

“Khabarak (Children’s News) is a program that represents different problems of Afghan kids in almost every aspect of their life. This program consists of nine parts. In the first section it talks about those kids that have to work and earn money rather than studying because their parents can’t work due to different reasons.  (more…)

Nigerian Media Company Celebrates Child Rights


From Yinka Ogundimu, Program Manager at Silverbird Television/ Rhythm 93.7FM in Lagos, Nigeria:

“For us children form an integral part of the society whose rights have for long been undermined. In agreement with UNICEF’s belief in giving the children a voice, Silverbird Television and it’s sister Radio Station will be dedicating a whole week (March 1-7) to the cause of children in celebrating the ICDB.

Our studios will open to the children as they present the News and location reports and some key programs. They will anchor these programs and discuss vital issues that relate to them.

On Sunday March 7, ICDB, there will be a live broadcast of “Kids’ Portfolio,” a children’s Parliament for the children and by the children. The parliament will be a replica of the Nation’s Legislative Chambers where the children will be passing bills on fundamental issues relating to them. Some of the bills expected to be passed on the day will be on 1) girls education, 2) child labour, 3) child abuse and 4) street hawking by children.

We do sincerely believe that at the end of the week, much attention will have been drawn to the rights of the Nigerian child.”
