Supporting UNICEF’s campaign “Diary of Covid19” - KidsOnline
Supporting UNICEF’s campaign “Diary of Covid19”


The #Covid19Diaries is a UNICEF global social media activation to engage children and young people during the pandemic and support them to overcome anxiety and solitude; voice their feelings and aspirations with their networks and peers; and share tips and tricks for getting through this trying time for everyone. UNICEF invites young people an opportunity to raise their voices and position themselves as influencers to:

  • overcome anxiety and mental health issues as a result of confinement
  • show the positive behaviours they have adopted to protect themselves and their families 
  • create a global network of solidarity through one-minute #Covid19Diaries 
  • share tips and creative ideas to adopt positive behaviours to fight the pandemic.


Children and young people produce a 1-minute video blogging their daily life when being at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the videos, they can share their feelings, experiences, tips and advice to peers in Viet Nam, and around the world. The video will later be shared on UNICEF Viet Nam’s digital platforms including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter with #Covid19Diaries.

Content Instruction:

Children and young people are encouraged to get as creative as possible with their #Covid19Diaries. For example, tell us how adapted your day-to-day life to get through COVID-19; how are you staying mentally positive  at home; do you have tips on how to study effectively home; how are you staying connected with friends; have you written a poem or song that you’d like to share? We’re open to all ideas! Here are some more references to inspire you. Please remember that these are just examples; you can explore and produce your video dairy in your own way!

Poem: Safe at home:

Learning from home:

Physical distancing with Farah:


Vietnamese, English or any Vietnamese Ethnic Minority language


UNICEF Viet Nam is excited to review all the #Covid19Diaries and select the most engaging for use on our national, regional and global channels.

Technical Guidelines:

  • Video should be taken on a smart phone with highest resolution setting available
  • Shoot video vertically
  • While shooting,  fix the camera to avoid shaking and panning
  • The mood of the video should be positive. Try to capture natural, raw footage without any setup or looking at the camera

  • If speaking in the video, make sure the audio recording is loud and clear
  • A short tutorial on how to film with your phone: (Note: please watch the video from the second tip starts at 1:22 as the first tip is to shoot video horizontally. In this #Covid19Diaries, we will film video vertically only)
