TV Show Sparks Discussions around Children’s Rights
A talk show dedicated to the Universal Day of the Child, and emphasizing the importance of early childhood development and education is making its way to the TV screens of Uzbekistan. A joint initiative of the National Association for Electronic Mass Media and UNICEF, the show features eminent actress JamilyaGofurova and singer IrodaDilroz who present their views on the issue. UNICEF Representative Sascha Graumannalso shares his opinion on the matter.
The show highlights that learning for a child begins early. The human brain develops faster from the first day of life and this growth is critical during the formative years, than at any later stage in life.
Strong biological, psychosocial, and economic arguments exist for action as early as possible, to promote, protect, and nurture the development of the child.
In Uzbekistan there are efforts to ensure good quality pre-schools in all regions, but parents and communities have to also play a critical role.While some people lack the resources to ensure that the child attends a kindergarten, many of us also miss out on the opportunity to contribute to the child’s development by simply giving them attention, talking to them, reading them stories, singing songs or playing together.
The talk show offers a platform for the participants to discuss these matters in a very interactive way and from various perspectives. UNICEF experts contribute to the dialogue around the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, with a special focus on early childhood development and education, a critical right of the child.
TheTV programwill be aired on MY5 TV channel at 1:30 PM on 20 November 2016,the Universal Day of the Child.
