MARSCOM

MARIST COMMUNICATIONS

THE WORLD AT YOUR FINGERTIPS.

Marscom Television, a Christian non-profit organisation, founded by Br. Oswin McKinney, fms, was established in 1989 to assist in the promulgation of messages to help humankind.

Marscom will help you to create, edit and/or produce your desired multimedia story, to enable you to present it to the world.

Our Focus

The enormity of loss of lives of children remains a prime focus for Marscom. Children speaking out, respectfully but defiantly regarding their human rights, continue to be a force to change the face of this new Millennium.

Students of Marist Pearce, Canberra carried the legacy from International Children’s Day (Australia) on 26 October to Universal Children’s Day (globally) on 20 November, passing the legacy from Decade 2 to Decade 3 of the 3rd Millennium, with students of the Philippines receiving it, carrying it into the future.

Students of the Mediterranea – representatives from Italy, Lebanon and Spain, carry the message of “Your Voice Matters.” 

The Children’s Manifesto ~

“Your Voice Matters”

Young people all across the world are rallying behind one of the most daring efforts to raise awareness about the situation of underprivileged children worldwide. Hundreds of Champagnat College students in Australia forged a trail into the Third Millennium and beyond (https://1miracle.org ).

They declared “The Children’s Manifesto”, carrying the legacy of children’s rights across millennia. Hundreds more students from La Salle College in the Philippines, gave their support, recording it in English and Tagalog as the legacy passed on to Peru and Brazil for recording in Spanish and Portuguese, now on and on ….. French, Japanese, Chinese, Indonesian, Italian, Persian (Farsi), Russian, Urdu and Sign language.

The multiple-language recordings, in addition to being recorded in the place of origin of the respective language, showcase Australia’s multicultural community and the voices of Australia’s young.

“The Children’s Manifesto,” with the addition of Indigenous young voices, will resonate from Uluru and Sydney Cove to countries across the world, helping to influence the destiny of this new Millennium.

It has already been translated and recorded in 14 languages, with more on the way.
