50 children, mostly girls, attend 2 day training for Children’s Parliament

After preliminary talks and meetings with representatives of the Children’s Parliament in the provincial capital, Quelimane, it was agreed that training would be provided to a total of 50 children – 25 from Supinho and 25 from Idugo – to prepare them for full integration into the district Children’s Parliament. The training covered children’s rights and the purpose of the Children’s parliament. Elections were held to select one President and 2 Vice-Presidents and a 12-month action plan for 2020 was developed. A key priority identified by girls in Idugo was the issue of domestic violence. They resolved to use various strategies, including drama and door-to-door lobbying to raise awareness among parents, teachers, local leaders and officials of the rights of children to education, clothing and freedom from violence.
