International
Children’s Film Festival

 

The association is developing an International Children’s Film Festival. Culture Exchange, to promote peace, love and understanding throughout the world. Film & Performing Arts Festival for children to be sponsored by international organizations. Developed by Ahmed Radwan & Jeffrey Taylor.

 

INTRODUCTION

The primary goal of The International Children´s Film Festival (The Festival) is to help advance the country´s reputation as a global player for children’s causes worldwide, in particular in terms of cultural exchange and opportunity through creativity. The project management team is already in contact with international experts whose concepts for addressing and solving children’s issues – such as those of street children to name just one – will be integrated within the overall Festival concept. Their ideas will also be presented and discussed during The Festival and offered to other countries interested in implementing them.

 

The Festival and Child Welfare

An international team of highly qualified psychologists and evaluators is already on board to prepare topics that are suitable for children of different age groups. Conferences and open forums focusing on these topics are planned to accompany The Festival, thereby highlighting its mission of supporting child development and welfare.

The topics for consideration are:

Health, Education, Sustainability, Dealing with the environment, Ethical and moral values, Freedom of speech, Internationality, Children’s rights, Dignity and Respect.

Help for a fulfilled life for homeless children all over the world

 

The initiative aims to promote and support ideas that advance society and help other institutions to implement their positive initiatives. One principle of our intended implementation is not to acquire any financial resources or to take money in hand, but rather to cover everything exclusively with real, purpose-dedicated resources. We will not actively seek donations, nor should our community be an organization that seeks donations.

We intend to focus the attention of society, public institutions and companies on worthwhile projects and motivate those involved to become actively and creatively involved in the care of children.

For example, a state can donate a piece of land on which a building (school, hospital or orphanage) is to be constructed by a company. Other companies could donate the facility, and states and/or public institutions could take on the management and personnel responsibilities, while governments and prominent individuals in the countries concerned would assist in raising awareness of the project.

 

Project Objectives:

  1. Eradicate the phenomenon of street children
  2. Achieving a safe life for these children
  3. Avoiding this phenomenon in the future
  4. Creation of qualified jobs for many people in the regions

 

Material support

  • Each affected country to seek a trusted local organization or management team to implement the project.
  • Land or buildings from the state or private individuals or otherwise allow construction companies to donate their services.
  • Different manufacturers take over the necessary funding needed, e.g. furniture companies take over the supply of furniture, etc.

 

A local institution, which will manage the whole project under the supervision of the state and will attract the attention, interest and sympathy of the population with the help of a well-known public figure

 

Psychological research methods

Street children beg for food, drinks, clothes, etc. It is a wrong way to send children into child labor without parental help, because it robs them of their childhood. A life in dignity requires that the fundamental needs of housing, physical reproduction and education be met, as well as entertainment, sports and emotional well-being. Personal and loving care by trained and experienced specialists such as sociologists and psychologists is essential. An introduction to the social and cultural life of each country is also indispensable, as young people should become full and recognized members of their community and one day be able to take their future into their own hands.

The project is possible and realistic if there is a solid and binding plan and well known personalities can be found as promoters. Let us together turn the lives of desperate young people into a hopeful future.
