Family for Every Child
This document outlines a workshop-based approach to consulting children on their priorities for a post-MDG framework. It provides a series of activities designed to be fun and engaging for boys and girls of different ages and in different contexts. Two workshop frameworks are provided: one for children 8-12 years and another for those 13-17 years. There is significant overlap in the activities for both groups, in part because these can be adapted according to the age and ability of participating children and in part to simplify the process for facilitators at the country level. The workshops are designed to be held with 6-8 children. It is recognised that in some instances, individual children selected for involvement may not be able to participate in group consultations. Where appropriate, the tools can be adapted to one-on-one or smaller group settings. These tools were field tested in Guyana and in India and have been adapted and revised accordingly. They are now ready to be used in other country contexts.
