Designing and implementing an awareness two days event about the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

The children were offered a learning experience manifested through two main methodologies: gamification and extracurricular activities. The event was implemented in cooperation with the UNESCO, the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, KAYAN foundation and the Environmental and Intellectual Development Association.

The activity intended to raise the students’ awareness about the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child and The African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child yet teaching them protective behaviors. We offered an organized and planned activities for eighty seven school students from the age of 9 to 15 years old, boys and girls. The participants were from five different national and international schools.

By offering various workshops during the event, we could help children broaden their perspectives about their own rights. Including their knowledge about their right to association with both parents, human identity as well as the basic needs for physical protection, food, health care, and criminal laws appropriate for the age and development of the child, equal protection of the child’s civil rights, and freedom from discrimination.
