NEWS / TRAINING: Linden youths participate in UNICEF multimedia training (GUYANA)

Linden youths were the first in the country to benefit from a United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) multimedia training session aimed at equipping the nation’s children to share their knowledge and experiences on issues affecting them.

About 100 children from ages 10 to 19 converged at the Egbert Benjamin Exhibition and Conference Centre last week to attend the training over a three-day period. The objective of the sessions was to ensure that children across the country were informed of their rights, HIV prevention, child abuse, domestic violence, gender-based violence and birth registration. At the end of the course, they were expected to be able to contribute to their schools’ newsletter and share their knowledge and experiences with others in the wider Region Ten community.
