Workshop on child rights at MIC

05/01/2019: Kenya

From 17th to 21st of December, immediately after the end of semester examinations, MIC community embarked on holiday workshops which were divided into year groups. As for the Second Year Brothers, we had a privilege of learning more on Child Rights which was facilitated by Brother Evaristus Kasambwe.

The facilitator took us through the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the African Charter in a very participatory way. He enlightened us on how to identify abuses on children through the guiding principles. Special focus was put on Right to Education particularly on articles 28 and 29 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. He encouraged us to promote these rights as advocates of children and youths.

At the end of this workshop we discovered that the topic on Child Rights is very important to us as apostles and educators of children and youths today. As it is said, “healthy boundaries create healthy relationships”: this really summarizes all what we have learnt. Those who know better than us, once said, “to be good is noble, but to teach others how to be good is nobler and less trouble.”

We are really grateful to our Br. Evaristus for the good work of empowering us with such an overwhelming knowledge which we need to enable us accompany the youths of today.
