“Everyone has the right to education. Education shall be free, at least in the elementary and fundamental stages. Elementary education shall be compulsory. Technical and professional education shall be made generally available and higher education shall be equally accessible to all on the basis of merit. Education shall be directed to the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. It shall promote understanding, tolerance and friendship among all nations, racial or religious groups. (Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948)”
We don’t only give legal and personal assistance; we also love to educate about human rights! We organize among other things information evenings, capacity building workshops and human rights training in schools to educate the youth. Capacity building:
We give capacity building workshops to train key actors from five strategic stakeholder groups (CSOs, government entities, service providers, community leaders, and the private sector) which can play a vital role in increasing Venezuelans’ access to available protection-related services. These trainings provide valuable information on migration, migration policies, international protection, and the human rights of refugees and migration; targeted content on available mechanisms in Curaçao; technical assistance to improve referral pathways and basic service provisions; and the identification of and reporting protocols for human trafficking cases.
We provide a human rights training that provides educational communities with essential pedagogical tools and strategies to strengthen their capacities in topics such as inclusion, intercultural thinking, prevention of gender-based violence, and the rights of refugees and of children and adolescents (including international protections and a child’s right to education).
