Adults Wouldn't Let Children Watch The World Cup So This Girl Built Her Own TV

Never underestimate the ingenuity of a child.

There are approximately 2.2 billion children in the world, and each one of them represents a small part of our future. 

Yet, children are often overlooked as unsophisticated societal burdens.

In this commercial for UNICEF's The State of the World's Children: Reimagining the Future - which celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child - we witness an innovative girl from South Africa who must create her own television projector after adults ban children from watching the World Cup.

It's a testament to the creative potential harbored within each child.

As UNICEF says, "Around the world, an innovation revolution for children is growing – often in the most unexpected places – and increasingly led by young people themselves."

After watching this bright girl cobble together a television projector out of scraps and discarded parts, it's easy to understand how protecting and advancing the rights of every child will determine (wo)mankind's future.
