Q. What is your information centre?
A. The Information Centre, which was formerly only a library, was transformed in April 2003 and now comprises two sections: A research area with global reports and books and other printed materials that can be used by students conducting research on any issues pertaining to children in the Eastern Caribbean and a child-friendly communication area.
The child-friendly communication area has a seating capacity for approximately 20 children and is designed for children to learn more about UNICEF. Groups on tours view a short child-friendly video produced by the office specifically explaining about children’s rights. They also view a display of children’s artwork, which depicts their interpretation of the articles of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and then they have the opportunities to discuss issues pertaining to children's rights and responsibilities.
Q. How can I access the Information Centre?
A. The Information Centre is opened from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays. Tours for primary school children are available on Fridays. Teachers or other supervisors, will need to call in advance and make an appointment for their students to visit. If you are a student at a tertiary or secondary institution and need to conduct research, you will also need to call in advance and make an appointment so that the required information can be researched and compiled beforehand and can be available for you to use when you come.
