School Awareness Programme on Human Rights and Legal Issues
The Ministry of Law and Justice, Constituent Assembly and Parliamentary Affairs with the support from the Strengthening the Rule of Law and Human Rights Protection System in Nepal Programme (RoLHR), conducted four school awareness programme as part of its outreach activities in Arghakachi and Gulmi districts in the last two quarters of 2013. The programme educated more than 1000 students from schools in these districts on the human rights and legal issues. The students also interacted with high ranking officers from the Ministry and discussed their queries on related issues.
The awareness programmes are expected to not just inform the students but also contribute to awareness building in households and entire communities, as the students share the information & knowledge in their homes.
This knowledge will encourage people to exercise their rights and entitlements as well as fulfill their duties and obligations. The RoLHR Programme is also providing technical and logistic support to prepare and develop awareness raising tools and materials along different themes.
