As children are facing various problems in and outside their homes, speakers at a program yesterday called upon the mass media to highlight the issues for establishing their rights.
If journalists through their writings present the child issue properly, violence against the children will be reduced, they said while addressing a meeting with online journalists at Dhaka Reporters’ Unity (DRU).
Continued media coverage would help raise awareness about the rights of children, drawing attention of the policymakers. It would pave the way for establishing their rights by ending all kinds of violence against the children, they observed. Emphasizing creating a children-friendly atmosphere across the country, the meeting hoped that the media would play an important role in the country’s interest.
