A rather good short film from UNICEF, leaving the facts and figures to one side and offering a snapshot of real lives, real childhoods so different from our own.
” This film is window into a different day-to-day world” as Victoria Rae, UNICEF UK’s Director of Communications puts it. “It’s a childhood where there is no school summer holidays because children don’t go to school. These are children who are missing out their basic rights – to learn, to clean water, to be healthy, to be looked after and just to be a child.”
It’s part of UNICEF’s Put it Right campaign, a five year project to address the rights of children. If you’ve got a minute, share a link to the video, and sign the letter to David Cameron and Nick Clegg. It asks them to prioritise child rights in the forthcoming UN special meeting on the Millennium Development Goals.
