아동의 권리 캠페인에 나선 Angélique Kidjo 친선대사

2007.09.18

* Goodwill Ambassador Angélique Kidjo in Benin campaigning for child rights
* 11 Sep 2007


World renowned singer and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Angélique Kidjo is in her home country of Benin this week raising awareness about the rights of children. Ms. Kidjo took part in several events including a taxi motorcycle rally as part of a campaign titled “Toutes les filles a l’ecole - All Girls to school.”

At one stop, Ms. Kidjo toured a kindergarten that is proving that school benefits not just children, but the community. Mothers here now have more free time to start their own small businesses, using micro-credit funds provided with the support of UNICEF. The income that these women are generating is paying for the education of these little ones and their older siblings.

SOUNDBITE (English) Angélique Kidjo, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador: "In order to improve the economies of our countries in Africa, we need more children to go to school, in order to decrease child mortality we need kids to go to school, in order for us to fight the pandemic of HIV/AIDS, we need our kids to go to school. One girl educated, is a whole nation that can be educated."

Ms. Kidjo traveled to the water village of Sô-Ava. There she joined with Benin’s new UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Zeynab to give support and to celebrate the progress that has been made to reduce the gap between the number of young girls and boys in school here in Benin.

Singing, dancing and sharing stories of success, it is this kind of mobilization of communities and government leaders that is providing a better life for all children
