On November 24-26 a workshop for child leaders took place in Tsaghkadzor, Armenia. The aim of the training was to develop children’s rights (including children’s participation, mental health, education), children’s movement building and project management skills among child leaders. The external trainers and trainers from Human Right Defender’s Office disseminated knowledge and skills to the participants in the mentioned directions. Based on these skills and information, the children created a road map based on the six priority children’s rights that will serve as the basis for their strategic plans. We are grateful to trainers Anahit Khachatryan, Ani Ohanjanyan, Zaruhi Hambardzumyan and Ani Ohanyan for an effective, interactive and meaningful course.

The capacity building workshop was attended by 28 children members of the National Children’s Leadership Team of the Global Campus Caucasus and the Public Council on Children’s and Youth Rights to the Human Rights Defender.

The GC Child Leadership Team is a global movement initiated by the Global Campus of Human Rights so that they can seize agency and become child-leaders in the promotion of children’s rights, using the participatory child-led approach at national, regional and the global level. More than 11 countries in the GC network empower children for creating structures, mechanisms and procedures for the smooth functioning and operationalisation of the entity.
