Dear Farid: Congratulations on the initiative. One idea of an action that comes to my mind is to have some of the girls develop a role play in which they take various governance roles at community, regional, national and international level and play out actions they put in place to bring to an end violence against women (in its many forms) and to ensure protection for women and girls human rights at all these levels. The role play would contrast the existing situation in their communities and the desired situation that they yearn for. Another expressive and communication action would be inviting artworks from them that 'talk' about their experiences as well as make messages of what they want to see done by leaders and policy makers, including adults in homes to remove all barriers to the full realization of their rights. Just thoughts, let me know how the day goes. Best wishes as you plan for it. James Nduko, Nairobi - Kenya. .....................................................................

I am working for a human rights organization called Promoting Human Rights and Education in Bangladesh (PHREB). We are going to organize an event called Honoring Future Nation Builders on 19 September in Chittagong. The event will honor 670 young girls who have gained highest grade point in the secondary examination from Chittagong education board. We are going to celebrate their achievements. They have achieved this result overcoming a lot of problems -- violence against young women is pervasive in the region. I would like to ask for most innovative actions for the day. Please let me know how effectively we can make women rights a fact for a society where women are not even considered as human being. Thanks in advance for your input. -- Faridul Alam Executive Director, PHREB Tel: +880 173 124372 House A/13, 3rd Floor, Road 1, Block - A, Chandgaon R/A, Chittagong 4212 Bangladesh ======== Global Human Rights Education listserv ======= Send mail intended for the list to < >.
