The Kenya Film Classification Board has taken part in the 1st National Symposium in Kenya on Child Care and Protection.
The Three Day forum held at Multimedia University of Kenya seeks to build synergy for enhancing child care and protection.
“Media shapes the character and being of our children,” stated Nelly Muluka Head of Corporate Communication (KFCB).
Muluka added that there is need to capitalize on the benefits in media for children since media is a major socialising agent for especially children in their formative years.
The event has been brought together by the County First Ladies Association, Association of Charitable Children Institutions of Kenya (ACCIK), ERIKS Development Partner, Kubamba radio and Multi Media University.
“We have the opportunity to make the children’s future,” said Dr. Mary Lonyangapuo, the First Lady West Pokot County.
Dr Lonyangapuo added that it is unfortunate that there are people in the society who put children at a risk by exposing them to concepts of adult nature.
The Board continues to partner and seek partnerships with institutions that are committed to the protection of children from harmful media content.
