up for children's rights
A passionate young student advocating for
children s rights has been selected from more
than 250 applicants to join UNICEF Australia s
Catherine Yen, 18, of Canberra, takes on the
role of UNICEF Australia Young Ambassador.
She joins a powerful group of child rights
advocates from around the nation.
"I would love to learn more about what
people of my age think about issues of human
rights and children s rights, Ms Yen said.
One other thing I would love to do is expose
other youth to opportunities to engage with
human rights and children s rights."
UNICEF works with government and
advocate bodies to defend children s rights and
support international development programs.
Ms Yen said children most at risk in Australia
included indigenous children, those living in out
of home care, those with a disability and
children locked up indefinitely in Australia s

impacts. It also resulted in children self-
Ms Yen said this situation could be changed
if the dehumanising language that encourages
public support for the harsh treatment of
refugees and asylum seekers was stopped.
She said the refugee debate needed to be
framed in more humanist terms.
UNICEF Australia s Young Ambassadors are
aged between 15 and 24 and represent the voice
of young Australians.
They also support Australia s children and
young people to learn about their rights and
offer them a voice on issues they feel are unfair
"I think it is important we listen to children
because I honestly think they are so clever and
so bright, each one is just full of unique insight,"
Ms Yen said.
ANIMALS IN AGED CARE
Grant enables elderly to keep their pets
A new grant project to support animals living
in aged-care settings has been established to
prevent the separation of elderly residents
from their beloved pets.
Animal Welfare League Australia has
announced the Pets in Aged Care Grants
program ,which will deliver $10,000 to fund
arrangements and modifications to enable
animals to continue living with their owners at
The program runs as part of the league s
Positive Ageing in the Company of Animals
Project. It will allocate small grants of up to
$1000 to assist aged-care facilities and
residents cover costs such as vet bills,
grooming, dog-walking, food and making
minor modifications to living quarters.
Funding may also allow for a carer to assist
with pet-care routines.
Animal Welfare League Australia executive
director Anne Boxhall said keeping elderly
people and their pets together was worth the
effort and could markedly improve the lives
and well-being of residents.
