As a way to demonstrate the influence that adults have on the lives of young children, the latest Unicef ad campaign focuses on the statement "A child who learns is an adult who teaches."
Using shocking imagery of class photos that have gone terribly wrong with unhappy students and corrupted teachers, the ads make it evident that adults have a responsibility towards the impact they make on the children around them. No one would want a whore, a drunk or a drug dealer to teach their children anything, especially because those kids eventually become influencing factors to others around them.
With the message "A child who learns is an adult who teaches," Unicef asks adults to prevent this vicious learning cycle.
