The Changemaker Challenge online course has ten steps, each covering a different aspect of child rights. Every step begins with a story about a child whose rights have been violated. Participants are encouraged to relate these stories to their own lives, learn relevant facts, and brainstorm ideas for creating change. Each step concludes with a simple quiz before moving on to the next step. While we recommend following the steps in sequence, it's not a requirement.

Children as well as trainers can share what they've learned with others. In schools, their families, villages and towns. In that way, more children and young people will be empowered to become changemakers where they live.
