What we do
- Offer talks and workshops to schools on global development issues
such as HIV / AIDS, access to education, etc looking at how they affect
- Provide various resources to help children and adults find out about
children's rights, both here in the UK and in many other countries in
- Actively seek to find out what children think and try to support them
in playing a full part in decisions that affect them.
- Offer opportunities for children and young people to take action with
us in support of children's rights everywhere.
Some useful resources:
- Count Me In analyses the views and experiences of
young people from minority ethnic communities in Northern Ireland.
- The Think of Me, Think of You training resource,
developed by young people from minority ethnic communities in Northern
Ireland, can be used to address all forms of discriminatory practices.
- Rightonline is for young people. It contains heaps
of information on children's rights and how Save the Children is working
to make those a reality in communities in the UK and around the world.
Examples of our work
We talked to children in schools and youth groups about HIV / AIDS and
how it is affecting children throughout the world. These lessons were
part of the Global Movement for Children's Campaign for World AIDS Day
2004. With Amnesty International, we invited children to come to Stormont
to talk to politicians and to ask what we can do to play a part in tackling
