In commemoration of Universal Children's Day, the Office of the Prime Minister launched its Child Rights Ambassadors Programme.

In a statement, the OPM said the Child Rights Ambassadors (CRA) Programme seeks to provide a platform where children will be given the opportunity to be Ambassadors for their rights and to speak out on issues that affect them.

They said through the CRA Programme, 47 children from 18 schools and four community residences were trained and empowered to educate their peers on the rights of a child using creative arts and innovative methods of communications.

Ambassadors were asked to submit creative presentations and videos highlighting activities they conducted with their peers as they shared information on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

These Ambassadors will continue to represent the Office of the Prime Minister, National AIDS Coordinating Committee, Gender and Child Affairs for a one-year period.
