Advocacy e-learning

Realising street children's rights through human rights advocacy

CSC’s e-Learning course, ‘Realising Street Children’s Rights through Human Rights Advocacy’, is a unique, online learning experience designed for organisations and individuals working to change the world for street children. Whether you are an experienced advocate, or completely new to it, the course offers something for everyone.

About the course

The course provides methods for developing an advocacy strategy, and action plans, aligned to your organisation’s capacity and strengths. It also contains insight into how to engage with the UN Treaty Body system, and the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child.

The course is delivered virtually through videos, group discussion forums, exercises, quizzes, and more, and can be completed at your own pace. It contains five modules, each of which requires several hours of study and independent work.
