ChildHelp aims to construct a child rights monitoring platform at community levels to help our local leaders and stakeholders with their obligations under the UNCRC, to correlate government policy and implementation structures and processes with child health and development outcomes. To achieve this, consultative workshops with children will be held in schools, to get them think about what should be happening in their lives, if governments and other adults were keeping their promises.
Our governments needs help to assess children's lives, measure children's development and help to keep them safe and protected. Children don't have access to dialogue platforms to voice out their needs as violations of their rights remain tragically common across the world. There is no data on physical and emotional violence against children, as well as data on other common violations of children's rights, including child labor and child marriage.
Experience facilitators will be recruited to work with children aged 10 - 17 years on their rights. They will initiate discussions to explore what is happening in their lives in relation to children's rights. Children have a right to be heard. We are very keen to hear what they have to say about it. Parent/guardian/carer/trusted adult will be consulted to allow their children to attend this workshop. We will discuss and generate ideas and what information we need. Refreshment will be served
This workshop will help provide data and information to protect children and promote their rights, to put the best interests of children first, to allow children to take part in decisions which affect them, to preserve and strengthen families and to recognise the role of the community in the lives of children.
