Prioritising Child Participation for Promoting Child Safety
Traditionally a child is not look upon as a citizen with rights. They are treated as passive receivers of care and nurturing. Community health initiatives do not systematise child’s participation in prevention care and support activities. As a result of this workshop, participants will be able to systematise child’s participation (their right) in addressing the health challenges they are working on. Seeing from a child’s perspective has enabled impactful outcomes.
The content looks at
· children using stories and safety enhancement tools (shared with participants)to gather information on safety risks and non threatening ways in which they share this with authorities for its redressal.
