The RIGHT to Grow Right



Destination: ESCWA, Downtown, Beirut

Date: Wednesday, 10 December 2014

Event: International Human Rights Day

Action: All Makassed students gathered in front of ESCWA to highlight their campaign which was about Children’s rights.

KSPS G5 students also gathered there, as a part of their ISA 2014-2015 activities/projects. Othman KG students also joined our team, together we made a huge circle requesting the rights of our children, the rights that has to be respected and granted.

Purpose: Students discovered their rights and also became aware of those rights.

 



On this special occasion, I would like to share Rash Sukkar’s speech:

“Dear President, principal, ladies and gentleman,
Millions of children
around the world have no access to education. They are forced to work long hours under hazardous conditions. In many cases, they are abused by the very individuals responsible for their care and deprived from playing. Many children grow without having health care, food, shelter, and family. By looking at their eyes, we can feel how sad and afraid they are.
Children
are the world; yes, we are the world. We are the sunshine, and we are the future. We are here to say please protect children around the world, so they can grow up to become brave adults. Our demands are very simple, we need to play, have fun, enjoy, express ourselves, our voices to be heard, we need to be cared, to be treated fairly, to be protected from all types of violence and abuse. We need to have good education. All we need is to grow happily and safely in a healthy world.
Thank you for your attention and patience!

But remember if only someone could make a change, together we can make a difference.
Thank you!"

KSPS students became responsible citizens now. They are aware of their rights and they are fighting hard to gain all of them.
Way to go little clovers :)
