Johannesburg, 25 November 2015 - As part of preparations for an upcoming Model United Nations Debate (MUN), Rodean High School invited UNICEF to address 90 learners on the issue of ‘child soldiers.’

In his address to the 90 Grade 9 learners and their educators, UNICEF Communication Specialist, Sudeshan Reddy, highlighted the work of the organisation both in South Africa and globally, including its work in rehabilitating child soldiers.

The address was followed by a lively discussion session in which a wide range of questions was posed by the learners whose awareness of the UN was impressive.

Information packs prepared by UNICEF were disseminated among the learners, who displayed a keen interest in the work of the organsation.
