The project was developed as a response to the need for civic education addressed to the youngest generation. The objective of the project is to encourage local communities to treat children as full right citizens whose voice matters for the provision of enhanced-quality early development and education services. The grantee hopes to ensure opportunities for children to voice their views in matters related to them, especially in education, and to teach adults to accommodate genuine needs of children in local education policy. The project will be implemented in five communities in cooperation with local authorities, NGOs, teachers, parents and children.
