Children's Rights

PROJECT PAGE

Challenge 1

Right to good food








Right to health care 

 










Right to clean water
 This is the main pool we take clean water from. It's called Shershnevskoye Water Storage.
It's an artificial reservoir, created in 1963-1969 in Chelyabinsk.
The length of the reservoir is 18 km, width 4 km.e
Shershnevskoe reservoir is used as the main source of water for our city.
Shershnevskoye reservoir actively used by people for farming. Along the banks of the reservoir eight collective gardens are located.
On the banks of the reservoir there are many blocks of flats as well as country houses, unfortunately often without central sewage treatment systems.
According to the statement of professor Nicholas Negutorova (Mechanics and Technology Faculty of SUSU), installation works as follows: the water passes through a pulse of electromagnetic charge with a certain polarity, frequency and voltage.
This setting causes the water to cleanse themselves and withdraw from its members harmful substances. This system has already been tested by world countries. The cleaning process takes 1-3 months, depending on the source of contamination.


Challenge 2 

First, watch the video here
 

Have you ever thought about one thing: “What makes children not to go to school?”. Our group thinks that the answer is poverty. It’s really the main reason. Of course, we don’t know how many millions of children in our world work to earn money for a piece of bread instead of studying. We think that all children deserve a successful career and good future. They just bury their talents because of the level of living. So, why do children need going to school?
We made a survey and the answers are following:
  •  Broaden their horizons
  • Developing independence
  • Endurance training
May be we’ll never solve this problem, but perhaps we need to start thinking over the problem for redusing it and finding the solutions.
 “Do you feel that you “have to” go to school or “may go’” to school?” the answer for this question should be found by every child individually…
 We think the more people will know about 1 million children working because of earning money for food for their families instead of studying for having a better future, the more people will appreciate what they have now. When our group analysed this problem we inbued the children’s grief and now we appreciate things, which we HAVE and don’t complain about the things we HAVEN’T (What about you?).
Is it really hard to give children a small chance for a better life!?
Primary students' works:

 
Look through the website "Kidsrights Youngsters" carefully.


All the winners of this competition (Children's Peace Prize Winner, 2014) have different goals, some of them are against racism, and someone is trying to help disabled children. They ask all people in the world can’t be indifferent to other people’s problems… like they do it. All the winners are very different,  but they have one great similarity… They are given the chance to do all their best for children in need. They are people of golden hearts!
 Each winner of this contest helped children. They also urged the public to solve this problem.
 Our group like the work which had been done by Om Prakash  (from India) for two reasons, such as:
·          At the very moment we are discussing the topic “Child Labour” actively and it’s really interesting for us, we’ve chosen to learn about this problem because we were in India (Sonepat) and saw poverty and hunger in a real life
·         Another reason is the phrase that Om Prakash said, this phrase made us thinking about our lives...     
He said: “The whole world needs to be held accountable NOW!”, of course we agree with this phrase. This quote has a very deep sense, lots of people in the world now believe that they should live happily, without thinking about the future… so…according to their minds … we are borning crying about the world issues... But a human being, that have been creating by nothing, disapper to nowhere… We think that we shouldn’t forget about the future. These thoughts have been prompted with the profound phrase … “The whole world needs to be held accountable NOW!”.
             We think Om understands this phrase like no other. He bears responsibility on his shoulders… In fact he turns up the fate of a child for the better.

We'd like to present you the interview with Catherine Tnushnikova, a Deputy Director of the High School of Management in International Programs, and Lyudmila  Alexandrova, a Director of the High School of Management, the Head of  “Business Club” (Russian-British Institute of Management)

Q.: What do you think which children’s rights are violated most often nowadays?
Catherine Tnushnikova: We guess adults very often violate the Children’s Right of making the own choice, for example:  where child should get education, which toys to play or which clothes to buy.
Q.: Do you know that many children don’t know about their rights?   Do you think that they should know about them?
Lyudmila  Alexandrova: I believe that they should know, of course. And parents and schools must tell them about their rights, such lessons of Children’s Rights should be like rules, and being included into the school timetable. In our country it’s not wildly discussed that is why children are not aware of their rights.
Q.: Please, could you tell us about your own life experience when adults violate children’s rights.
Catherine Tnushnikova: Fortunately I haven’t got such an experience personally. But in our world children have such rights as: the right for a life, the right for a rest and so on. In my opinion in our country social institutions should organize special centers that will control the situations of Children’s Rights.  We think that the most important problem in Russia is that adults can offend their children easily, so called home violence that is closely connected with corporal punishment etc
Lyudmila  Alexandrova:  I agree with my colleague. It would be great if we had a special police department to control the people who violate children’s rights in Russia, and we could say to them:  STOP VIOLENCE!
RESPECT, SUPPORT AND LOVE THEM!
 Q.: Thank you
