Training for replicators: Realising children's rights

The training activity took place
in Cotonou, Benin
organised by SOS Children's village International

Aims & objectives

Main aim of training was to enable participants to modify and replicate training in their national contexts. It was planed that participants should leave the course:
• With a better understanding of children’s rights and human rights
• With an ability to identify restrictions or violations of children’s rights
• With an appreciation of the need for children in alternative care to have their rights respected
• With strategies for more effectively embedding children’s rights into their work
• With a child-centred perspective and a view of children as ‘whole persons’
With an open mind, a willingness to try out new ways of working, and the motivation to do so
