The Free Press Journal - - MUMBAI / STATE -

Chil­dren ‘took over’ the Na­tional Stock Ex­change (NSE) on Tues­day as part of UNICEF’s spot­light on the most press­ing chal­lenges faced by the young gen­er­a­tion.

The 'Kid­sTakeOverNSE' event was or­gan­ised as part of the UNICEF’s ini­tia­tive to cel­e­brate the Chil­dren's Day by mak­ing them es­say high-vis­i­bil­ity roles in me­dia, pol­i­tics, busi­ness, sport, and en­ter­tain­ment to high­light chal­lenges faced by them.

“At to­day’s event, chil­dren rang the clos­ing bell and took a round of the NSE build­ing ac­com­pa­nied by se­nior UNICEF and NSE of­fi­cials,” a UNICEF rep­re­sen­ta­tive said.

Mean­while, in a re­lease the UN agency said, “A group of 35 chil­dren took over the iconic Na­tional Stock Ex­change on Chil­dren’s Day on Tues­day to voice their sup­port for pro­tect­ing the rights of the world’s most vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren.”

Th­ese chil­dren in­ter­acted with busi­ness lead­ers and Vikram Li­maye, MD and CEO, Na­tional Stock Ex­change, it said.

The kids in­tro­spected and shared

ideas on how busi­nesses can en­sure pro­tec­tion and pro­mo­tion of chil­dren’s rights through an in­ter­est­ing panel dis­cus­sion, the re­lease said.

Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, Hen­ri­ette Ahrens, Deputy Rep­re­sen­ta­tive - Pro­grammes, UNICEF In­dia said, “One very im­por­tant right for chil­dren is their right to par­tic­i­pate.”

“We be­lieve that chil­dren are not only the fu­ture but also a big part of the change we need to bring. They are the most in­flu­en­tial change agents," she said.

The re­lease quoted Li­maye as say­ing: NSE is proud to fa­cil­i­tate the first of #Kid­sTakeOver in the world in as­so­ci­a­tion with UNICEF.
