The Child’s Rights Club was started on 20th May 2008 with the support of UNICEF, Save the Children Fund, World Vision, National Authority of Children and the International Labor Organisation.
There are currently 21 member journalists from 13 different media organisations; 6 TV, 3 Radio, 7 Print as well as 5 communications people from various civil society and NGO groups.
The Clubs mission is to improve the understanding of interested journalists in issues to do with child rights and thus improve the coverage and quality of information in the media.
