Creative Contribution by Children Advisory Comitee

The children which participated in the Children Advisory Comitee in Nicaragua shared a creative summary of their work and the consultations during the Time to Talk-Project!

The consultations were organised by our partner Cuculmeca in Jinotega, Nicaragua. The seven children created a child friendly Comic to share their working and living situations. Each child explains his own view and opinion.

Background Information:

Collaborative participation of over 150 children aged 9 to 18 who were actively involved in children’s advisory committees that accompanied the research and consultation process by drawing upon working children’s expertise and insights as advisers, analysts, and advocates. Opportunities for collaborative participation, where there was a greater degree of partnership between children and adults, were also supported through the Public Action Events and National Exchange Programme. They, in turn, supported collaborative initiatives by adults and children, giving opportunities to children to share their key advocacy messages and dialogue with concerned adult duty-bearers in Bolivia, Guatemala, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Nicaragua, Nepal, Peru, Senegal and Thailand.
