My name is Frederico Maduela, I'm 19 years old, I'm a young reporter for Rede da Criança. I joined Rede da Criança when I was 11 years old. I started with my activities in 2011, with a very strong commitment to work for the rights of children. I had the opportunity to be part of the Youth Network in 2013.
As a reporter, I have covered and promoted a number of children's issues, such as: child early and forced marriage, Global Action Months, national girls conferences and, in recent years, I have been working with the Youth Network on the strategic goals proposed by the Terre des Hommes. Being a Youth Network member, I feel happy.
I advocate and fight for the rights of the children in my country. I am passionate about children's rights because I was once a child and I have suffered many things and when I met Rede da Criança I had the opportunity to know and defend my rights and help other children to know their rights.
