A multi-media campaign was launched on Maldivian Children's Day (May 10, 2001). Weekly ECCD radio and television spots featured caregivers in short dramas or simple stories demonstrating practical interactions and activities with children 0-3 years. For example, one radio spot emphasised the importance of saying "I love you" to a child. These productions represented people all over the Maldives and for the most part, used everyday families as opposed to actors.
