Rights Connections works with schools to engage young people in human rights issues and empower them to act to improve the world around them. We use a project approach that encourages students to take the initiative in planning and implementing projects whilst assisting them to reflect on their experiences.
Children’s Rights Projects
This workshop introduces the concepts of Human and Children’s rights and the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Participants will explore contemporary children’s rights issues, at local and regional levels, and will work as a team towards developing an awareness project to influence their everyday surroundings.
Rights Connections launches an awareness campaign to promote and embed Children’s Rights practice in our everyday surroundings. Get your creative juices flowing, use your drawings, words, images to create your own t-shirts to express your Children’s Rights messages. Click here for more information on how to participate.
Migrants’ Rights Social Projects
Working with schools and partner NGOs, we seek to engage young people with the issues affecting migrant workers in Singapore. Through enabling young people to spend time with marginalised groups such as construction workers and domestic workers, and through encouraging them to design and implement projects that will bring benefits for these communities, we hope to break down barriers, educate and engage young people.
Through spending time with and assisting migrant workers we hope that the next generation of employers and leaders will be empowered to act to defend the rights of migrants and other marginalised groups.
