      Select one specific right that interests you or where you see a potential for discussion. You can check the list stated in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, but also choose depending on what you would consider a human right, and what could be useful to discuss in your own context.

      Now, all you have to do is to prepare a plan of a non-formal education activity (not longer than one page) to make children of your community or organisation understand and reflect upon that right.

      Please consider these guidelines:

      • What is your age target group?
      • What is the group size required to conduct the activity?
      • What is the right selected?
      • What material or practical conditions are needed for the activity?
      • Describe:
        1) the preparation and the purpose of the activity
        2) the instructions for the implementation
        3) the expected outcome or possible debriefing questions
      • Make it simple: specific and feasible.

      Share in the forum your activity plan and review those of 2 fellow course-mates (if possible). What feedback could be useful for them to put their own activity plan into practice?

      1.16–21
      2.It should consist of about 25–30 people.
      3.As this age group has “What i think is only acceptable” kind of people, so it’s hard to convince or persuade them. In this matter we can do is to treat them as they treat others, at the same time so they could come to know about their drawbacks and negativity by their own selves.And this has for sure a considerable amount of impact in a positive way in their behaviour.
      This also enable them to learn through their own selves and bringing about self determination to do more and good for seeking self worth and encouragement..!!

      I choose article 5 -no one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment- Age target group is 14-18 because of teenager traumas not easy to get over. The size of group will be between 300-350. The project is about teenagers who are from abusive parents, homeless, forced to make criminal acts and beat by police or people from prison. We will work with pedagogs, teachers and NGO workers. If they want we want to provide dorms. Self-confidence, self-worth, prove communication skills will be part of the project.

      Everyone has the right to education.

      One can initiate a discussion about this right with high school students (17-18 years old), it is known that education is the strongest engine for personal development. Like any fundamental right, the right to education must be promoted through the involvement of all actors in society. The right of access of persons to education imposes on the state the obligation to provide this service free of charge, within certain limits and with certain standards prescribed separately for each level of education. And from here the discussion can continue …

      My target group is 10-20 age groups.
      My groups size is 50 students.
      I chose the right 26. Everyone is right to get free education.
      Students who live in a small village and cannot reach the school and get a proper education.

      Purpose of this course is students will be able to understand the value of the education.
      They imitate a real life activity and also learn various circumstances.

      At the end of the course, they will be able to learn what getting education is free and also raise awareness about how valuable to reach education.
