- Project: Making Children’s Voices Count
- Country: Liberia
- Goal: To raise awareness on violence against children by means of a capacity building training for children on ICT and social media campaigning
Making Children’s Voices Count
KidsRights will raise awareness on children’s rights and in particular violence against children through social media. Together with local organization YOCEL, we will train twenty children on ICT and social media, leadership and campaigning, so that they can start their own campaigns on violence against children. This way children will inform other children about the existence of children’s rights and expand the circle of awareness across the country.
