Exercise our rights

“Global Vote Day at our school was special. The village Chief and adults from government saw how it empowered children as we exercised our rights and power to vote.

I learnt that there are many children and adults in the world who fight for children’s rights. This empowers me. I think that at our school we should fight for girls and boys’ rights. The club empowers girls and even boys to get more knowledge about their rights. In our club we have talked about human trafficking as it happens everywhere. People take children to use them for selling drugs or for child sex trade. I don’t want that to happen to people around me. This is why I talk about it in the club.”
