All children can become Child Rights Ambassadors and start a WCP Child Rights Club at school. They can use the WCP Program and hold a Global Vote, press conferences, child rights celebrations, and carry out other activities to promote the rights of the child and democracy.
Who can join?
All children can form and run a WCP-Child Rights Club. Begin with 4-5 members and then, as you get organised, you can invite many more friends to join.
Who does what?
Pick different areas of responsibilities or take turns in doing different things. Someone can take notes at the meetings, while others make posters or write letters. You may select a chairperson, or take turns leading the meetings.
What do we do?
Besides the WCP Program, there are many things to do. Make a list of 5–10 activities. Discuss them and take a vote on what to start with. It can include:
• Organising parties and rallies.
• Getting more friends to join.
• Making posters about child rights – pick issues that you feel strongly about.
• Visiting politicians and demanding respect for your rights. • Putting on plays or writing stories.
• Holding competitions and debates
Focus on girls’ rights!
The Rights of the Child are important for all children. But girls are often treated worse than boys. Half of the world’s children are girls, but many more boys than girls are able to go to school. It is also harder for girls every- where to make their voices heard and be able to make decisions regarding their own lives. This is why we focus on girl’s rights!
