What is the problem?
Kingsley has seen how hard it is for many children in his environment to voice their opinion. Their parents tell them how to act and what to think. These children cannot even choose their own friends or hobbies. This harms their development and prevents them from finding their own voice.
Kingsley believes that children should have control over their own lives and should have a say in matters that concern them!
What is Kingsley’s solution?
Kingsley wants children to understand that they are allowed to make their own decisions and fight for their own rights. They have their rights and they have a voice. Kingsley wants to teach these values at meetings held at his school. These meetings will be attended by teachers who will support Kingsley by explaining about children’s rights.
What is his goal?
The debate will be a good opportunity for Kingsley to evaluate the results of his meetings. Will the children be able to communicate their position? Do they dare to express themselves to the adults?
One day, Kingsley hopes to found an organization that will help children become independent. All children should know what their rights are and how to safeguard them!
How does Kingsley work?
Kingsley will organize the three meetings himself.
Who does Kingsley need?
Participating students and teachers who can attend the meetings.
