The children section started with the main objective of empowering children. As part of our activities, we sensitize, prevent and respond to exploitation, abuse/violence and neglect: with commitment to ensuring protection of all children in our society.

(b) “4” Kids TV Programme
The Programme “4 Kids” became necessary as a result of societal lack of awareness and implementation of the convention on the rights of the child in which the basic rights of children were highlighted. Hence “4 Kids” was used to enlightened members of the society on the need to be alive to the protection of the rights of children.

The actors are mainly children and youths; this, in addition to sensitizing them on their rights also helps in training them to take leadership roles at various levels. It also emboldens then in the art of public speaking, presentation, and audience management.


The programme enables children to be responsible to their rights. It was shown on NTA Ado Ekiti , Ekiti State Television (EKTV) Ado-Ekiti and NTA Abeokuta.
