Letting children tell their story. That is what reporter Tako Rietveld did for over ten years for the NOS Youth News. Mostly in the Netherlands, but also in China, South Africa and Brazil. He discovered that children all over the world enjoy talking to him. A special expertise that he is now going to employ as a freelance Kidscorrespondent.
Thousands of children, the king of the Netherlands, president Obama, Laura Dekker, whales, tigers, the Olympic games, the World Championship Soccer, disasters and stunts. Working for the Youth News was a dream come true.
The Kidscorrespondent and his team travelled to the African country Sierra Leone to let children tell how the ebola epidemic affected them.
