We have worked with a number of organizations based on the shared conviction that putting children first on the public agenda is fundamental for the realisation of their rights and well being, as well as bringing about lasting social and economic progress in the developing world.
Undertaking a range of communication and advocacy efforts with our clients, led by the principles enshrined in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, BRC has focused on promoting and profiling the core messages and recommendations that aim to bridge the gap between the rhetoric on children’s rights, and the reality that millions of children face as their governments continue to desperately fail their children and young people.
Our work includes;
● Developed communications and advocacy strategy for the African Child Policy Forum (ACPF), Addis Ababa ● Global and African launches of Report on Child Wellbeing (Nairobi, Addis Ababa and Dakar) ● Writing Advocacy Guidelines for Worldwide Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) ● Writing a range of policy position papers for WAGGGS (e.g. nutrition, drugs, violence, pregnancy) ● Developing and writing a media-friendly report on children and disability in Africa ● Media and advocacy events on disability and children in Africa ● Writing a media-friendly report on violence against children ● Collaboration with award-winning journalists on film and report on children in prisons in Africa ● Writing a range of media materials on children’s rights ● World premiere screening of films on adolescent sexual health with IPPF and DFID
