Nick International has partnered with NGO Kids Rights Foundation to launch #KidsCan, a global campaign designed to educate young people about making positive changes to the world.
The move has been taken as a part of its together for good pro-social initiative.
Through the campaign, Nickelodeon’s platforms will air profiles of the nine Children’s Peace Prize winners and nominees from around the world through December in more than 170 countries.
The features include personality quizzes, tips on how to make change at home and how you can help others.
Profiles on each #KidsCan change-maker will broadcast monthly, focusing on children such as South African disability activist and 2011 Peace Prize winner Chaeli Mycroft, who created a campaign to provide equipment, physical therapy and support programs to thousands of disabled kids.
The profiles will also be available online at the Together for Good campaign hub and on Nick’s regional websites.
The campaign’s full list of change-makers includes:
- Michael Steven Uribe (Colombia) – 2017 Peace Prize nominee focused on peace initiatives using performing arts
- Om Prakash (India) – 2006 Peace Prize winner focused on child labor issues
- Fahima Elmi (The Netherlands) – 2017 Peace Prize Nominee focused on child homelessness
