It’s great being a kid because kids are naturally exuberant and full of potential. Most importantly, every kid is gifted in their own way - all it takes for them to shine is the opportunity to exercise their rights! This March, ‘Be a Star at KidZania Kuala Lumpur’, from 17 March to 8 April 2018, celebrates children’s rights through music, acting, modelling and the use of technology in each of these areas.
Bringing these rights to life are the RightZKeepers of KidZania Kuala Lumpur - Urbano (Right to Know); Beebop (Right to Create); Chika (Right to Share); Vita (Right to Care); and Bache (Right to Play).
“There is no better way to communicate children’s rights than through - performing arts,” said Shahrul Nizar Ahmad, Mayor of KidZania Kuala Lumpur. “The ‘Be a Star at KidZania Kuala Lumpur’ programme is aimed at inspiring awareness of children’s rights by allowing kids to experience and explore what it’s like to create, play, know, care, and share in exciting ways! Apart from that, the arts is an important avenue for improving confidence and communications skills. These are valuable life skills which will serve them well as adults, supporting our philosophy to help children ‘Learn Life Today’.”
