Do you know that Children’s Rights does not only cover the basic needs for physical protection, food, education and healthcare but also includes things like freedom from discrimination – be it race, gender, religion or disability. Yet, around the world, millions of children are denied a fair chance for no reason other than the country, gender or circumstances into which they are born. Awareness and knowledge of the society on these matters are extremely, as our children today will be our leaders in the future.
To build the awareness on children’s right, Majlis Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak Malaysia (MKKM) organised a Senior Child Advocates Workshop titled “IMAGINE: A WORLD FIT FOR U & ME” in collaboration with StudyHub Malaysia, Digi Telecommunications Malaysia and Taylor’s Education Group here in Taylor’s Lakeside Campus. Held on 12th May 2018, the programme aimed to empower, educate and inspire 35 children between the age of 13 to 24 years old of various backgrounds including refugees, Orang Asli, disabled, underprivileged and 2 Taylor’s students that attended this event to become child advocates.
