Capacity building workshop facilitating the participation of boys and girls from a rights based approach in education

Various Save the Children offices came together in Cõte d'Ivoire 23-27 September 2008, for a ‘Capacity building workshop facilitating Participation of Boys and Girls from a Rights based approach in Education'. The workshop represents Save the Children’s commitment to take forward the movement on child participation in education in Africa and the MENA regions (Middle East and North Africa). It concentrated in providing participants with the knowledge and understanding necessary to begin using the two tools “Getting it Right for Children, the Practitioner’s Guide to the CRP handbook" , in addition to Save the Children’s "Practice Standards in Children’s Participation". The workshop attempted to create an understanding of children’s right to ethical and meaningful participation and its implications for proper planning, implementation, methods used and particularly, advocacy within education programmes.
