MONACO, Nov. 17 /CNW/ - On the 20th Anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, November 20, 2009, one organization is prepared to support children by helping them to easily understand and access their natural privileges. CyberDodo.org (or .com), a multi-platform, interactive, digital space for children, championed by an animated Dodo (CyberDodo(R)), inspires, daily, young people and their adult guardians to protect the rights of children. CyberDodo is leading the charge to inform and empower youth on the issues that matter most to them by providing free access to smart and engaging audio-visual and print material.
The multilingual, "edutainment" website, currently available in English, Arabic, French and Spanish, offers multimedia content, including 10 hours of cartoons, games and files, and is complemented by a 7-book series, or "Edupack," available to schools and those without Internet access.
CyberDodo, the animated character and universal ambassador promoting the message of the "Defense of Life", is free of any affiliation related to race, gender, religion, politics or social level. It is this unbiased approach to the mission of human rights that allows children of all nationalities and identities to access the information needed to achieve their unalienable rights. The social networking website, connected to 2 billion people, provides an easy and fun way to introduce children to their basic rights and get them involved in promoting the issues.
CyberDodo has a long standing partnership with the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, "I am pleased to say that my Office has supported the development of the project since its creation," says Mrs Navanethem Pillay. This alliance has allowed CyberDodo to become a major non-commercial source of information for children, parents, educators and all other entities involved in encouraging the rights of children.
CyberDodo is also supported by HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco who says: "I hope that this action will effectively contribute to promote these rights so that the children become themselves the eager defenders of this cause."
Promoting child-specific needs and rights in a way that children can easily understand by using the latest in new media technology and traditional print publications, CyberDodo is a global education tool helping to connect and inform all communities about the pressing situation endangering the world's children and the environmental state of our planet.
