The Article 15 Project - Capacity building for child and youth self-organisation


The Article 15 Project supports the capacities of children and youth around the world to self-organise and fulfil their rights, in partnership with adults. It includes a set of activities like ‘Organisational Diagram’ and ‘Decision-making Chart’ (Module 6) that you can do with children to analyse and plan child participation in your organisation.
