This year ‘Child Rights Week 2020’ has been announced from 5 – 11 October with the theme of ‘Creating a New World with the Children”. Like previous years, KK Foundation (KKF) also celebrated ‘Child Rights Week 2020’ at the community level through it’s Joy Shokol Shishur Program to ensure children’s meaningful participation and development.
KKF has taken initiative to arrange various activities; expressing children’s views about child rights and fighting coronavirus, Essay competition for children on prevention of child marriage, art competition, and awareness theme based documentary preparation, tree plantation, and indoor and outdoor sports activities. The main purpose of the week was engaging youth and children in these events. KKF wants to empower the children letting their voices be heard through writings, painting and giving them a platform to express opinions and eliminate all forms of violence against children through sensitizing community people.
A completely different approach were taken by the foundation this time. The children of the shelter house were divided into numbers of groups and prepared 11 documentary 3 to 4 minutes video clips. Story writing, script preparation, video, costumes, editing all the relevant activities were done by the children with the supervision of shelter house mentors.
