Child Rights education for children and their communities. To claim their rights children and their care takers need to be aware of them and child rights governance programmes seek to raise understanding of children’s rights and how they can be implemented in practice.
Capacity building among service providers and other important actors. Teachers, social workers, police and judiciary staff as well as other professionals in regular and close contact with children need the competence and capacity to work in a child friendly manner respecting the rights of every child. Also, the media, academic institutions and the corporate sector need to know about children’s rights as they can play a supportive role in advancing children’s rights.
Capacity among child rights civil society organisations. Save the Children is engaged in networks that push for accountability of governments towards child rights. Save the Children also works to strengthen civil society organizations, capacity and resources to promote, contribute to and advocate for children’s rights to be respected and to claim accountability from those responsible. Save the Children also works to strengthen civil society’s capacity to support child-led groups and their networks, and to support children’s advocacy initiatives to promote their rights.
