Dear friends, Human rights education is a long term process and a lot needs to be done with this regard. We are an Egyptian NGO that has a program for human rights education for school children, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education. We work in 90 schools in Cairo, El-Menya, Fayoum, Bany Swaif and Kalyoubia governorates. We target public school children from 11-17 years of age, boys & girls equally. We also target school teachers, produce training material for children and teachers, and target parental councils and the school administration. The activities of our program are: 1. Produce material for human rights education: notebooks & posters. 2. Training of school teachers, on human rights, and help them develop tools and activities to be conducted through schools. 3. Summer camps for school children -- to educate them more deeply on human rights, and to facilitate their exchange of information and expereince on different activities on human rights through the established Human Rights clubs. 4. Competition between Human Rights clubs for best practices, aiming to encouraging human rights as a way of living and not only as information to be well known!! 5. Support to Human Rights clubs with libraries and material for its activities. 6. Meetings with school adminstration and parental council to involve them in the process and provoke them to support it. Our program was initiated on 2004 in 20 schools, and now its in 90 schools as mentioned above. We also have conducted a conference to set a national plan to implement the World Program, which was attended by NGOs, Ministry of Education, teachers and experts in addition to participants from other Arab countries -- Morocco, Tunisia, Yemen, Lebanon and Palestine. Also we are in the process of establishing a national Taskforce to follow up this process, and a regional one to activate implementing the World Programme in the Arab region. We look forward to hearing from you.
