Kids report on world cup, child safety

With children on extended holidays for the duration of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, there were concerns that the sporting event brought with it new threats and risks, in terms of children's safety. Children from Saxonwold and Naturena Primary Schools in Johannesburg attended a children's press conference on 12 June 2010, dealing with issues like children in the media, child safety and human trafficking. They then participated in a radio project with Media Monitoring Africa where they trained and worked as child reporters. They conducted the interviews on 3 July and 8 July and their report is now available.
