NGO & CBO Partners
Non-governmental and professional organisations as well as faith and youth-based organisations are UNICEF's partners in the community. We work with these organisations to share expertise and mobilise grassroots support to achieve results for children:
§ Childline Malaysia
Childline Malaysia is a project that aims to set up a national 24-hour free phone emergency outreach service for children in need of care and protection and aims to link children to long-term services. It is run in partnership with child-focused NGOs, Childline International, UNICEF, the State Government and the corporate sector. UNICEF supports the activities of Childline Malaysia, towards upholding the spirit of the Convention on the Rights of the Child with a special focus on protecting and 'listening' to the rights of the child.
§ Malaysian Child Resource Institute (MCRI)
MCRI is a non-government organisation dedicated to promoting awareness of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. MCRI works with local and international NGOs as well as UNICEF to provide leadership, knowledge and resources to policy makers, service providers, advocates and the media, to promote the Convention's principles and articles.
§ Malaysian Press Institute
MPI provides training programs for media practitioners and recognises Malaysia's best journalism works through its annual award, the Malaysian MPI-PETRONAS Journalism Prize. UNICEF collaborates with the MPI for seminars to engage editors and senior reporters in dialogue on ways to protect and promote child rights in the media.
