CRT facilitated a workshop on child participation and child-led projects on 6th & 7th March at the CEO centre, Kottanoor, Bangalore.

The workshop was organized by Child Fund India to train their partners implementing child-led projects on child participation in the spirit of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).

Child-led projects have immense potential to bring about change and empower children. Hence, building the capacity of those involved in these projects and ensuring they have a clear understanding of child participation is extremely important for the realization of child rights.

The workshop, designed to be interactive and participatory through group discussions, activities and games, was attended by twenty-five participants from various districts in Karnataka.

The participants found the workshop to be helpful, especially since they are involved in child-led projects.

Many participants shared that they had thought participation to mean children dancing or singing and the children were never involved in decision making. They appreciated the clarity they got through the workshop on effective child participation and its impact and were extremely enthusiastic to incorporate what they learnt in their projects.
