Save the Children
Young Voices began when Save the Children Sweden carried out the “Ung röst” survey, in order to collect the views of Swedish children and adolescents about their rights, and therefore generate a useful advocacy tool on the issues that affect them directly. The first results were launched in 2014 and has been replicated in different regions, with Peru being the first country in the Americas to carry out the survey. In 2018, it is replicated in Paraguay and Uruguay.
The general objective of the survey was to develop solid evidence to promote the debate on the rights of children and adolescents, and their right to participate in the discussions about them. A total of 2260 schooled children and adolescents participated in the survey, who were from 12 to 17 years old, from Asunción and 13 municipalities (Central, Cordillera, Itapúa, Concepción, Boquerón, Presidente Hayes, Paraguarí, Caaguazú, Ñeembucú, Amambay, Alto Paraná, San Pedro and Canindeyú).
