During the Awards Ceremony on 6th July 2013, Save The Children will give out an award to the Best Children’s Film shown during Zanzibar International Film Festival 2013. Save the Children in Zanzibar is implementing an integrated, functioning and well-coordinated child protection system using national guidelines on fulfilling the rights of and protecting children from all forms of abuse. The organization is implementing a national campaign on Violence against Children in partnership with different stake holders including Zanzibar International Film Festival.

The campaign to prevent and address violence against children recognizes the need to provide better protection for Zanzibar children from violence at home, in school and in the community—violence that all too often goes unnoticed. It is an important example of co-operation between international organizations and civil society as well as the wide-ranging role played by the Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar.
