“If possible, I want the rights to survival since I’m in my mother’s womb.”

“I just want to raise my opinions.”

“Just listen to me and understand me, that’s all I want.”

“Children like me want to be protected.”

“My rights as a child are taken away from me.”

“My future depends on me or you?”

“I’m human. You’re human. What the difference?”

“When will society stop valuing people from social standards?”



Guaranteeing children's rights.


1. Have you given children the right to survive?

“I’m poor but I should have accessibility to healthcare.”


“If possible, I want the rights to survival since I’m in my mother’s womb.”

2. Have you given children the right to expression?

“I just want to raise my opinions.”

 

“Just listen to me and understand me, that’s all I want.”

3. Have I received what children should receive?

“Children like me want to be protected.”

 

“My rights as a child are taken away from me.”

4. You might think that child rights abuse is a common practice.

“My future depends on me or you?”

5. I define the social norms or the society that put me in the norms?

“I’m human. You’re human. What the difference?”

 

“When will society stop valuing people from social standards?”

Throughout the 6 years as a youth leader at ECPAT Foundation. I gained a lot of experience, developed my self-esteem, and am very proud of myself. I decided to be a young leader in this project because I would like to enrich my knowledge on the prevention of Child Sexual Exploitation, Children's Rights, and generate multimedia to communicate the problems and how to solve the problems.
