Bamboo Shoots: a Training Manual on Child Rights from Cambodia
Bamboo Shoots is a training manual on child rights, child protection and child-led community actions for facilitators working with children and youth groups. It was originally created by Plan in Cambodia. You can download it here.
Bamboo Shoots was developed to: define what are childrens rights, increase children's understanding of their rights as defined by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC); raise children's awareness of their rights and build their capacities to claim them; create opportunities for children to recognize, identify and prioritize issues and problems or gaps in relation to child rights violations; and provide opportunities for children to influence agendas and action regarding identified and prioritized child rights violations.
Bamboo Shoots takes complicated concepts and breaks them down into easy language and engaging, interactive sessions. It also offers good resources and background material for facilitators so that they can manage the sessions well.
