The aim of this project is to increased knowledge about the rights of children with special needs and how rights principles can be turned into practice. The project is targeting academia and practice, i.e. students and teachers at the partner institutions as well as staff and children at local schools for children in Norway and Tanzania.
The lack of knowledge about UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilites (CRPD) and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) is vast, and turning principles into practice requires mindset changes. The project is based on joint learning, development, knowledge dissemination and practice implementation of UN rights of children with special needs in Norway and Tanzania.
The exchange participants are students in the final study year at, accordingly, Patandi Teachers’ College of Special Needs Education and the Social Educator Bachelor Programme, HIMOLDE. A total of 20 students, 10 from Tanzania and 10 from Norway, exchange for three months.
In collaboration with academic staff the project participants will produce information material and provide presentations facilitated for academia and practice, adults and children.
