According to the Convention on the Rights of the Child, all children have the right to be cared for and protected. Thus, everyone that has contact with children has the responsibility of keeping them safe. Children also have the right to participate in issues that are related to their well-being and play a role in keeping themselves safe.
This supplement hopes to contribute to the basic understanding of child protection. Additionally, it proposes basic activities for adults and children to become aware of the importance of protecting children’s rights. To do so in an effective way, the child protection supplement was designed not only focusing on the content related to child protection but also considering the 21st century competencies that fall under the four pillars of learning
Each Thematic Supplement is designed to be taken in 6-10 additional courses to complement Aflatoun’s core curricula, and compiles essential activities about a specific topic aimed at different age groups of children, young people and their caregivers. The user may choose the activities that meet their needs. Ideally, the activities under each section can be done sequentially, but if needed and if some sessions were already covered in other occasions, the activities can be done as stand-alone activities. All supplements can be used in formal or non-formal education settings.
The supplement was funded by The Botnar Foundation and Vitol Foundation and were developed based on the results of a consultation with partners in the Aflatoun network.
