Through direct participation, children are encouraged to raise their self-esteem, gain social and problem-solving skills, and develop a sense of control over what happens in their lives. The case studies from Yemen, Nepal and Palestine show children’s potential for building up life and health against all odds, in a variety of situations and cultural settings. They bear witness to a strong commitment by the projects to make the UN Convention on the Right’s of the Child a reality in their work. Compiled by a group of researchers.
