Handover of equipment to ORTM and signing of the framework agreement between UNICEF and MCC
Antananarivo, 04 april 2023 – ORTM and UNICEF are currently enhancing their collaboration through the allocation of materials including production equipment for National Television and National Radio. In return, ORTM will provide a space dedicated to children and young people in its broadcasting premises, for television programs related to themes supported by UNICEF as part of the promotion of children's rights in general, namely health, education, nutrition, hygiene, well-being and, above all, culture. To this end, UNICEF agrees to support press visits to ratify the partnership between the two entities, to cover and record actions undertaken on behalf of children through these partners.
In 2022, ORTM and UNICEF signed a partnership agreement to jointly promote children's rights by producing programs by children and for children for a period of two years, based on the various themes supported by UNICEF, with the support of the Ministry of Communication and Culture. These programs will then be broadcast on national channels for all young people in the country to follow.
In addition, UNICEF and the Ministry of Communication and Culture are consolidating their collaboration to facilitate and support each other's work by signing a 12-month framework agreement. This agreement will serve, on one hand, to maintain a relationship of trust between the Ministry's entities and attachments, and UNICEF. On the other hand, the agreement will enable UNICEF to define with the MCC the various joint projects to be implemented, and the continuity of support for key programs such as professional training for journalists, the "Young Reporters" programme, and cooperation with the "Office de la Radio et de la Télévision Publiques de Madagascar" to promote children's rights in Madagascar.
