Join with Girl Scouts and Girl Guides internationally to gain a greater awareness of human rights and why they are essential for children worldwide. The activities in this patch encourage you to take constructive responsibility for claiming basic rights for yourselves and for others. In the process, you will be empowered to become effective citizens in your local and global communities.

The name of this initiative, "Our Rights, Our Responsibilities," comes from the current triennial theme of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). The initiative is based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, a human rights treaty adopted in September 1990. The treaty was designed to encourage countries around the world to safeguard the rights of children. The convention highlights the need to protect children from abuse, violence, and exploitation, as well as to provide access to adequate nutrition, healthcare, and primary education.

This participation patch, which will be in effect through 2008, can be earned by completing at least one activity from each of the six theme areas:

  1. The right to be me
  2. The right to learn
  3. The right to be heard
  4. The right to live in peace
  5. The right to be happy
  6. The right to work together
Get all the details on activities to fulfill the the patch requirements at GS Central.

This looks like such an awesome program. I want all my girls to do it. Anyone know of any local orgs that work on human rights issues?
