The German children’s channel KI.KA will carry a special report on the ICDB called “Finally in School! Ben in Rwanda,” a show that will explore a situation where children’s rights aren’t always realized in the everyday lives of kids.
Ben visits Rwanda and gets to see both children in school and those who are not so fortunate. He visits the Murama School in the Murama/Gasabo District, which takes part in the “Schools for Africa” project of UNICEF. There he sees young people taking charge of their fates with the help of education. He also visits with a number of other children who are not so fortunate to go to school.
The show’s purpose is to encourage German children to stand up for children elsewhere and to challenge the stereotypes that Western media often portrays to its spectators.
