Workshop on Child Rights Education

Dear friends,

On 29th of March 2011, Ms. Namita Lamsal, coordinator of AIEJI’s South-East Asian network took part in a workshop on “Child Rights Education”, in Kathmandu, Nepal.

The workshop was coordinated by Creating Possbilities, of which Ms. Namita Lamsal is a key member.

The main goal of the workshop was to create a knowledge base in order to initiate academic education courses on children’s right on both national and regional level in Nepal.

Among key stakeholders at the workshop were UNICEF Nepal, Save the Children International, Supreme Court of Nepal, International Institute for the Rights of the Child and Institute Universitaire Kurt Bösch.

The workshop included a presentation and discussion session about the need for education on children’s rights in Nepal, the activities conducted so far and a proposal of content for an educational programme. This was followed by group work where each group discussed a given topic: Needs and activities in order to realize the education; stakeholders and their roles and responsibilities in realizing the education; educational programmes: training, bachelor/master, post graduate.

The workshop concluded that there is a need for education on children’s rights and mandated Creating Possibilities to proceed with the efforts to realize it. The main aim is to develop trainers who can go to remote areas of Nepal while also building partnerships with government, universities and academic people to formulate a child rights policy.
