Knowledge of Rights & Curriculum for life

Knowledge of Rights & Curriculum for life

Project Description

The Youth Forum bases a lot of its work on rights including
the UN Convention on the rights of the child. 


We believe that more work needs to be done to educate young people on their rights. 

We are also of the view that more needs did to educate young people with regards to life skills. 

These important areas are often missing in the formal education system. 

We are suggesting that:
  • adults are encouraged to respect children’s rights
  • Make information on rights available in school; in youth groups and on social media
  • Schools should cover topics including finance, sex, relationships, rights, and politics as part of the school curriculum.
  • Prioritize Education on children and young people’s rights education for all
