Child participation involves encouraging and enabling children to make their views known on the issues that affect them.
Put into practice, participation is adults listening to children, and to their many varied ways of communicating. It ensures their freedom to express themselves and takes their views into account when coming to decisions that affect their daily lives.
Engaging children in dialogue and exchange allows them to learn constructive ways of influencing the world around them. This programme focuses on providing a platform for children where they get opportunities to learn, analyse, and express. MSMV aims to work with children in 12 schools through the MSMV clubs that encourages them to be agents of change through deeper involvement in matters that concern them. This is done by increasing the knowledge of children and facilitating hands-on experience in identification of issues in their community and society, and working towards addressing their issues.
To empower children through effective and meaningful participation.
