Amnesty international: Making rights a reality – Gender awareness workshop

This pack has been designed for use by Human Rights educators and trainers working in the field of Women’s Rights.
The material can be used by participants with a varying degree of expertise in the area of Human Rights and/or Women’s Rights. It is left to the facilitator’s discretion how to grade material in such cases.
The activities have been written with an adult audience in mind but most can be adapted for a younger audience (although facilitators should give considerable attention to suitability of case study materials and other resources when working with young people).
The material in Module One can be used with participants with little or no prior exposure to discussions on gender and is a useful starting point for self reflection by Amnesty International members, human rights activists and wider civil society members.
The material in Module Two builds on issues and topics raised in module one. It is designed to be used with participants made up of activists working on Women’s Rights issues and is directed at Amnesty International members and the wider community.

It takes children lifting the voices of young leaders

This report was photographed and written by 21 children and young people, aged 13 to 18, who are part of the World Vision Young Leaders project, which aims to equip and empower them to engage in actions to end violence. I have had the privilege of working with these children and young people from countries throughout Asia, Africa, South America and Europe. I have watched them create a global network where they communicate, share their own experiences and the experiences of other children in their countries, and together try to find solutions to the problems that affect them, especially those related to violence. They write blogs, represent their peers at high-level debates, and speak in the name of all the children who do not have a voice.

Our Bodies book

One in three South African children will be sexually abused in some way by age 17.Jelly Beanz believes that parents and caregivers can help prevent the abuse of their children by having open and honest conversations about bodies, sex and body rules. These conversations should start as children enter formal schooling. The Our Bodies book has been developed to guide parents through this difficult, but very important process.

FAQ’s:

Is my child not too young to learn about sex?

  • It is a parent’s privilege to be the first person to speak to a child about bodies and sexuality. You will impart the facts of life, but also the values and morals that you want your child to have. If children do not learn about sex from a parent by the time they enter formal schooling, it is only a question of time before another child, a sibling or the internet will inform them.

Will my child not become overly interested in sex if I talk about it?

  • No. Young children are generally more interested in how babies develop than in how they are conceived.

Schools do sex education, can I leave it to the school to have the talk with my child?

  • Schools do sex education and it is important for educators to speak to young people about sexuality. If your child has questions or problems it would be better for your child to speak to you rather than at school.
