So, CMAP had the wonderful idea of creating a Children’s Rights book made by children for children. CMAP Mexico began developing the project and now, in Guayaquil, Ecuador we are following suit. Our goal is to reinforce the children’s knowledge of their rights through art, recreational and leisure activities.
We have now had three successful weeks of workshops developing the project and have two more weeks to go.
We´ve been pleasantly surprised about how much the children actually do already know about their rights. Each week has begun with a few icebreakers, in relation to the theme of the week, and quizzes to help the discussions and fun along, followed on by the art activity itself. We will be sending the artwork to England to go towards the production of the CMAP Children’s Rights book.
