Today’s selection is a video from UNICEF for the #ENDviolence against children campaign.
UNICEF is the United Nations Children's Fund. UNICEF works in 190 countries to promote and protect the rights of children. Their work is funded by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments and not by the United Nations. Through contact with UNICEF, the lives of millions of children have been changed for the better.
From the YouTube page for this video:
United Kingdom-based electronic musician Four Tet lent his single Our Navigation from the album Beautiful Rewind to this music video, directed by Phil Reader in Tanzania to promote UNICEF‘s #ENDviolence against children initiative.
Hip-hop star Ambwene Yessayah, better known as AY, and former Miss Tanzania Faraja Kotta Nyalandu — both UNICEF‘s newly-appointed National Ambassadors for Tanzania’s #ENDviolence initiatives — appear in the video to highlight the important role of young people in the national response to violence against children.
Violence against children is everywhere, but it’s often hidden or occurs behind closed doors. #ENDviolence against children is a global movement to spark local action that “makes the invisible visible” and ensures every child can grow up in a safe environment.
WARNING: While there is no actual violence against children shown in the video, the subject matter is such that some scenes are disturbing.
