ACTIVITY ONE (2023/2024)

INTERNATIONAL ACTIVITY

CHILD RIGHT PROTECTION: EVERY CHILD HAS A VOICE

This activity focuses on raising awareness about children’s rights and the importance of respecting and safeguarding them. It aligns with Goal 16 of the Sustainable Development Goals, which aims to promote peace, justice, and strong institutions, striving to end abuse, exploitation, trafficking, and all forms of violence and torture against children.

 

Dansol High School students were educated about their rights as children by the Taiwo Akinlami Academy crew and the Street Child Care Welfare Initiative (SCCWI) on separate occasions. Through these organizations, they learned about the fundamental rights of children as outlined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) adopted in 1989.

 

These rights include:

  1. The right to life, survival, and development.
  2. Protection from violence, abuse, or neglect.
  3. Access to education that enables children to fulfill their potential.
  4. The right to be raised by or have a relationship with their parents.
  5. The right to express their opinions and be heard.

Also, the fundamental rights of a child according to UNCRC are now displayed at different offices or locations in the school as a reminder to all stakeholders.
