Hundreds of children from all communities in Kosovo today marked Children’s Day in Kosovo this year with arts and sports activities, thanks to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and its partners.During the Day, children expressed that they share the same aspirations in terms of education, health, friendship and peace, urging adults to keep their best interests in mind.“Children have a lot to say and they have a right to be heard,” said United States actress and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Alyssa Milano, who visited Kosovo for the event.“It is our responsibility to listen and give them opportunities to interact with their peers from all communities.”More than one decade after North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) forces drove out Yugoslav troops amid bloody ethnic fighting between Serbs and Albanians, ethnic divisions still hamper interaction among communities in Kosovo. The high level of mistrust among communities was reflected today, when insecurity forced UNICEF to move the celebration outside the northern city of Mitrovicë/Mitrovica, where events were scheduled to be held.The agency expressed its strong regret that the celebration could not take place in both parts of the city, as planned.“UNICEF believes that children are powerful agents for change and that each generation is a chance for a new and beginning,” it said in a press release. 1 June 2010Hundreds of children from all communities in Kosovo today marked Children’s Day in Kosovo this year with arts and sports activities, thanks to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and its partners.
