Or fill out our form and email it in! Presentation Request Form. The GlobalChild project is an international project organized by the United Nations. The UN has decided to create a global monitoring tool that they will have all countries use to report back with, called GlobalChild, and it is near its completion stage. The final task they are doing before sending the tool out for all countries to use, is to hear from youth around the world on how they feel their rights are being upheld.
The GlobalChild project has 49 focus groups taking place in 33 different countries, 9 are happening in Canada, and we are facilitating the ones happening here in Whitehorse. The rights that these students examined were articles 23, 24, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30 and 31 of the UNCRC.
These articles are: the right to special education if needed, the right to the best healthcare, the right to help from the government if you are poor, the right to food, clothing and a safe place to live, the right to education, the right to education that helps you use your skills and abilities, the right to culture, language and religion, and lastly, which may be one of the most important rights, is the right to play!
