Educational tools

Information, awareness and education are essential for the promotion, the protection and the respect of children’s rights. Our educational worksheets are intended for professionals who will be able to deal with a target audience and a variety of topics related to children’s rights. They are available on our website site in French, organized by year and by theme.

All the tools are also available on the documentation page and can be found using keywords in the search engine.

Each tool contains:

A theoretical part that deals with a specific theme, often related to current events. This theme is based on the International Convention on the Rights of the Child and other international standards, national laws and applicable principles. More specifically, the subject and the issues are presented in order to better inform the adult in charge of the animation or the awareness session. It allows him to be exposed to the necessary resources to more thoroughly discuss topics related to the rights of the child using clear and accessible language.

The educational tool also contains a practice part designed in an educational perspective that provides awareness and illustration of the problems discussed in the theoretical part. Various activities are possible and differ depending on the audience: games (role, maps, etc.), documentaries, debates, group work, simulations, etc.

The educational approach aims to launch critical debates on any situation where violations of children’s rights need to be denounced. The purpose of the debate is to encourage reflection and allow everyone to form an opinion. Our worksheets are primarily aimed for an adult audience, mostly professionals (teachers, educators) engaged in working with or for children.

DCI-Belgium aims to participate in the "promotion" of a society that respects the human rights of children through awareness, training and adult education.

For example, here are some subjects that had been dealt within our educational tools: the right of the child to education; the right to have a family life; the rights of the child in development cooperation; child sexual abuse; the right to social assistance; female genital mutilation; the rights of disabled children; child victims and witnesses; adoption; the access to justice; children in armed conflicts; etc.
