Summary (goals and purposes of the project)
The compulsory education age in Hungary was lowered to 16. As a consequence, vulnerable youth is not able to reinforce their needs and fully enjoy their basic human rights especially their right to education.
We will organise a series of human rights education workshops in 10 afterschools, 2 human rights camps, 4 thematic days both for students and their parents. We want to give them tools and different perspectives to learn about and stand for human rights.
We also want this project to be sustainable and have a long term impact. Therefore we will also organise trainings for afterschool teachers, conference for professionals involved, informal forums for parents; we will involve 10 local NGOs and will will build online and offline relationships.
