Poster exhibition in Sultans Park to mark World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse

The NGO Advocating the Rights of Children (ARC) is hosting a poster exhibition in Sultans Park November 19 from 4pm to 6pm to mark World Day for the Prevention of Child Abuse.

The posters displayed at the exhibition will consist of those received for the poster competition that ARC announced on 10 October 2010, on the theme “Against the many faces of child abuse”.

This poster competition and exhibition is held in association with Thilafushi Corporation and in partnership with United Artists of Maldives (UAM).

ARC will also be launching a holiday programme, including swimming and art, for children at the Kudakudhinge Hiyaa orphanage on November 20, the Universal Chidren’s Day.

The swimming programme will be conducted in conjunction the Maldives National Defence Force (MNDF).

The NGO said it hoped both the swimming and art lessons would “give the children more self confidence as well as give them something meaningful and fun to look forward to, especially during the holidays when schools are closed.”
