1. Discover our free educational tools
Children and adolescents should be able to stand up for their own rights and those of their peers all over the world. Discover several educational tools to work with your students on children's rights
2. BECOME A SCHOOL for rights!
A School for Rights is a school where children and adolescents become aware of their rights and those of their peers all over the world. The school gives the rights of the child a place in the everyday school culture: in the courses, in the school rules, in the activities, etc. The children and adolescents who are aware of their rights, realise that they can participate and make change in the society.
To become a School for Rights, you work two to three years to create a children's rights culture in your school. Together we evaluate which rights are already established and which other steps can be taken. You are not alone in this journey: KIYO and the other partners from School for Rights support your school with tailormade workshops and formations. Schools who completed the whole trajectory can be labelled as a School for Rights.

3. STIMULATE ACTIVE CITIZENSHIP AMONG children and YOUTH
Children and youth often struggle with the complex search for their identity and purpose in life. Many children and youth with a migration and/or diversity background grow up between two worlds where they do not feel at home in one or the other. Problems of discrimination and social exclusion make a smooth integration in society harder.
KIYO and Karama Solidarity have set up a project where we want to offer young people from a different background perspectives. We inform children and youth about the rights in Belgian society. We stimulate the adolescents to speak up and take action themselves.
4. ORGANISE A FUNDRAISing activity WITH YOUR SCHOOL
Make a powerful statement and organise with your class or school a fun fundraising activity to stand up for the rights of children all over the world. After all, which sign is more powerful than children and youth promoting the rights of their peers all over the world?
Here are some ideas to get inspired:
Christmas market | Exposition and selling of self-made art | Selling roses on Valentine's Day | School dance with a Brazilian theme for the children in Rio de Janeiro | Flea market | Benefit concert | Selling soup or hot chocolate milk during cold winter days | Quiz | Christmas cards | ...
