Resume:

Projektet, "Children, Know Your Rights", handler om at sikre indiske børns rettigheder med særligt fokus på misbrug, børneægteskaber og børnearbejde. Indien har en række love på området, men mange børn, unge og deres familier kender ikke til deres rettigheder, eller hvad de skal gøre hvis de oplever at deres rettigheder bliver krænket. Gennem involvering af lokale skoler og oprettelse af børnerettighedsklubber vil børn og unge blive undervist i deres rettigheder og empoweret til selv at kunne kæmpe for retfærdighed og lige rettigheder. Der vil blive uddannet peer-træneres blandt eleverne fra hver skole. Derudover vil en række moralske og lovmæssige duty bearers blive trænet og udnævnt børnerettighedsambassadører. Projektet implementeres i Villupuram distrikt i Tamil Nadu i Indien med særligt fokus på to fattige landområder (taluks).
