From 26 to 28 February, PARTAGE and three of its partners met in Compiègne to work together on a joint project entitled “Cantines des Écoles du Monde.

The aim was to define the joint challenges and activities to be implemented together in order to encourage pupils to stay in school and have access to better food, while developing partnerships with the various educational players in the areas where we are working: teaching teams, parents, local communities and canteen staff.

Youssouf Dainane and Nasser Assoumani, from the NGO MAEECHA in the Comoros, Arsène Adiffon and Tobias Gbaguidi from the NGO RACINES in Benin, Dina Raouf and Hanaa Kaldas from the association AHEED in Egypt joined us to present what they are already doing in schools and canteens. A wide range of subjects, each as relevant as the next, were discussed: How can we get everyone involved in improving the quality of food and education? How can we take into account the economic realities and vulnerability of children and families? How can we ensure that communities and authorities take greater responsibility for canteens? How can we work together to build a project that will enable thousands of children to grow up better and strengthen us collectively?

This “giant brainstorming session” came up with a number of ideas and, above all, an incredible amount of energy to work at our own level to improve the well-being of children. Thank you to our guests for their motivation and their ever-increasing contribution to the Rights of the Child.

Several beneficiary children have sent us videos to celebrate the 34th anniversary of the signing of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child. These children and young people share their views on their inherent rights.

Through these inspiring videos, the children invite us to see the world through their eyes, to understand their experiences and to recognise the crucial importance of Children’s Rights.

Each video is an open window, offering heartfelt reflections on themes such as education, health, nutrition, protection and participation. These ambassadors of hope express their aspirations and dreams and highlight the challenges they face on a daily basis.

Their words on the Rights of the Child transcend linguistic and cultural barriers, uniting the voices of these young people in a symphony for a fairer and more equitable future.

By sharing these videos, PARTAGE hopes to amplify the voices of these children, transforming their messages into a powerful force for raising awareness on this day of 20 November, which serves as a reminder of the crucial importance of guaranteeing the rights of every child everywhere in the world.

Testimony of Yolaine Guérif, Managing Director of PARTAGE

“On this anniversary of the Rights of the Child, many of us want to shout out to the world that children should all have the right to live in peace, to grow up protected and to play freely.

Nearly 45 million children are displaced by conflicts around the world, 244 million do not go to school and 1 in 3 children around the world does not grow up normally because of malnutrition!

This situation, which makes us howl, also gives us the energy to fight relentlessly, even though great progress has been made over the last 34 years. I’ll let you listen to these children who are bearing witness for us on this anniversary, they give us wings to build a better world together!”

By celebrating 20 November, PARTAGE and its local partners on the ground are reaffirming their daily commitment to the rights of all children, emphasising that every day counts in the quest for a world where every child can grow up with dignity, protection and hope for the future.

From November 24 to 26, 40 volunteers, employees and partners of PARTAGE participated in the launching seminar of the project “Children committed to the objectives of sustainable development” at the Fort d’Aubervilliers. Hosted by the Fort Recup association, these three days were an opportunity to draw inspiration from cross-disciplinary experiences, to share skills, to learn from multiple cultures and to develop a common action plan: all the equipment needed to set sail!

With the same educational intention, this international team will contribute to accompanying the children on this long-term project, which involves various issues: promotion of global health, environment, children’s rights, interculturality… How can we contribute to the personal construction of our young actors so that they develop their spirit of initiative, citizenship and solidarity?

Following this course, the seminar aimed to identify the strengths and weaknesses of each person, to debate their own representations of education for citizenship and international solidarity, to discover during a round table the small successes that shape the confidence and desire to act of young people, or to grasp the challenges to be taken up on the monitoring and evaluation of the project.

These numerous exchanges made it possible to learn the fundamental posture to adopt in order to facilitate the acquisition of human skills in conjunction with the educational teams. Between school life and family life, there are spaces for listening, for non-judgment; spaces of pedagogical freedom to be created during this project, where young people can commit themselves to the implementation of meaningful actions, provided they are accompanied.

Strengthened by these moments of conviviality and quality, our 40 participants are now ready to raise the anchor towards their territories, to avoid the icebergs by supporting, encouraging and valuing during the three years of the project approximately 3,000 young sailors who will reveal to themselves and to others their power of humanity.
