Summary

In France, since 2014, CAMELEON has been conducting awareness workshops on children's rights and international solidarity for pupils from primary to high school. We consider that it is essential for young people to know their rights in order to be better protected, including on the Internet and social networks, and to be active players in society. We have developed a global approach to preventing violence, offering modules to teachers and parents, informing the general public and institutions.

Challenge

In France, 1 child out of 5 is a victim of sexual abuse (European Council, 2010). One of the recommendations of the Defender of Rights is to protect and promote the rights of the Child defined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and in particular the right to be protected against all forms of violence. Our mission is to address the lack of knowledge of children's rights, responding to the demand of public authorities and civil society to better protect children.

Solution

Our mission is necessary considering that the health and social crisis linked to COVID-19 exposes children to increased risks of violence, especially cybercrime. As a result of CAMELEON's interventions, children know their rights and can recognize dangerous situations, including on the Internet. They are able to identify resource persons in their environment to ask for help in case of danger.

Long-Term Impact

Before our interventions, less than a third of the children know their rights. After our workshops, we distribute a memo to the participants that lists the 12 main rights of the child and 100% of the pupils can identify contact persons or know the emergency numbers in case of violence. In 2020 we were able to raise awareness among 1,390 children, 64 supervisors and 722 parents. Your gifts will help us to extend our mission to more children and adults.
