RIGHTS OF THE CHILD
These are key to achieving aspects of the UNCRC – respect for the views of the child (Article 12), one of the key aspects underpinning our primary education programmes – teaching children not only to respect the views and opinions of others but also to respect their own identity.
Our programmes work to improve the self-esteem and confidence of children to enable them to positively participate both at school and in their community through education, health, leisure, play and culture.
We work to find new ways to reach children who need us most, no matter their socio-economic background or where they are, using innovative digital platforms to engage and educate from a distance.
To give every child the best possible chance in achieving their goals, we collaborate with charities and agencies who have the same ethical framework to grow how we grow, train and educate teachers and support workers nationally.
This has a domino effect that engages with numerous articles within the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). It can be hard, or even impossible, to learn, relax or play (Article 31) if a child doesn’t don’t feel safe.
Under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) signed by 196 countries, it is critical to ensure children receive their basic needs and reach their full potential regardless of their race, religion or abilities- every child matters.
Every child has the right to feel safe.
We lead the way in tackling problems regarding personal safety and well-being (Article 24), providing programmes that provide education on drugs, alcohol and sex (Article 33) (Secondary years education), and protect children through essential life skills packages that schools can run with in line with their school curriculum in a fun, age-appropriate and engaging way.
Our programmes educate children about the different types of bullying, how to recognise them, and the impacts each one can have. Whilst not mentioned directly, bullying is both a breach of the human rights act and the UNCRC – (Article 19); the protection from violence, abuse and neglect. A child’s education can be jeopardised if they refuse to attend or are removed from school as a result of bullying.
At RESOLVEit our mission statement is ‘everyone has the right to feel safe’. This applies to both adults and children of all ages. Education is a fundamental right (Article 28). Across the world children’s lives are shaped by their education.
Unfortunately, there are many factors such as bullying which can act negatively against this right.
