Change Projects

The networks were formed within the ITP “Child Rights, Classroom and School Management”.  The overall objective of the programme was to initiate change process focusing on the best interest of the child. Teams of three change agents from the same country conducted change projects based on the 3 Ps – Provision, Protection and Participation in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. In the archive (link opens in new window) you find project reports from all countries.
