UNICEF Myanmar sends young journalist to Regional Children’s Conference28 March 2005 – UNICEF recently sponsored a young journalist from Myanmar – Kyaw Hsu Mon of Flower News – to attend the 7th East Asia and Pacific Ministerial Consultation on Children, during which 20 countries from the region made commitments on a range of children’s issues, including disparity, child survival and adolescent development.
Kyaw Hsu Mon reported on the regional Young People’s Forum preceding the Consultation, as well as the Consultation itself.
“It was a good chance to meet other young journalists around the Mekong region, and learn how media work in other countries,” said Kyaw Hsu Mon, who, along with 21 other Myanmar journalists, received UNICEF-sponsored training last year on international-standard reporting skills, child-focused reporting and media ethics.
