UN 장애아동 권리조약 행사에 참가한 어린이들

2007.04.06
* UNICEF: Youth take part as historic UN treaty for rights of the disabled signed * 03 Apr 2007 Mauricio Gutierrez from Nicaragua and Ani Hovahannisyan from Armenia may seem different on the surface, but they have both faced the stigma and discrimination that comes with having a disability. As a young leader of the national organization “Los Pepitos,” which helps parents of children with disabilities, Mauricio uses his experience with his own disability to help others. SOUNDBITE (Spanish): Mauricio Gutiérrez González: “I was born prematurely at 5 months and suffered a brain palsy. Doctors gave me 48 hours to live after being born.” In her native Armenia, Ani is using her journalistic aspirations to advocate for the rights of children with disabilities and for understanding of their unique situations. SOUNDBITE (English): Ani Hovahannisyan (from b-roll): “Children with disabilities need education from the early age. It will also take a society that is aware of and accepting of difference. In our society there is stereotypes towards people with disabilities which are difficult to eliminate.” Mauricio and Ani are both determined to speak up in the hopes that improvements in the lives of young people with disabilities will help them to be better integrated into society. SOUNDBITE (Armenian): Ani Hovahannisyan: “The first problem that I see, is accessibility; children should be able to enter schools or cinemas and wherever they want to go.” Both of these remarkable young people were invited to speak during the recent landmark signing ceremony of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, held recently at the United Nations headquarters in New York. It is the spirit of these children that UNICEF hopes will encourage its regional and country offices to support the ratification and implementation of the convention. SOUNDBITE (Spanish): Mauricio Gutiérrez González: “Worldwide society should be re-educated as they don’t understand the value of people with disabilities and what they are capable of.” As for Ani and Mauricio, they will continue to educate and spread awareness about the right of the disabled, knowing that it is the most important instrument to helping them achieve equal status in society. SOUNDBITE (Armenian): Ani Hovahannisyan: “It is very important that children with disabilities have a chance to be educated with other children. Then they will learn to live together.”
