UNICEF Gala 2009

UNICEF in partnership with the Romanian National Television will on June 1st 2009 organise UNICEF Gala, a telethon to raise funds for the development of parenting programmes in Romania.

The show will be hosted by Mrs. Andreea Marin Bănică, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Romania and Dan Bittman.

The theme this year is the improvement of parents’ skills, since good parenting  is the main determinant of a child’s prospects of reaching his or her full potential in life.

Good parenting means creating the best environment for a child’s development, including early stimulation and education. It means ensuring your child is properly nourished and cared for, is protected against disease and injury and is correctly treated when ill.

UNICEF works with partners to promote and develop parenting programmes in Romania. The telethon is part of a strategy to raise awareness and funds to expand such programmes to reach a far greater number of parents, especially the most vulnerable and socially excluded. This will help to ensure that all children enjoy their right to the best care and nurturing that their parents can provide.

We invite you to join us on Children’s Day, the 1st of June 2009, on TVR 1 at 9 pm.
