GAW 2012 Activities Dodoma

TEN/MET’s coalition has effectively involved the local government leadership starting from the Minister for Local Government, the school committees representing school leadership and parents, to reflect on the importance of investing in ECCE as a prime action for the government in promoting improved national social economic development. Furthermore, there will be children’s exhibitions on the launch day (22nd April, 2012) to show children’s talents from the beginning.

This time, to stimulate more participation, the launch is being held in Dodoma, the capital city situated in the centre of the country. The city also houses the Ministry for Local Government, which manages basis education issues including ECCE initiatives. Therefore, TEN/MET has strategically positioned the coalition for ECCE advocacy at local level.

During the climax on the closing day (28th April, 2012) the children will participate in displaying the big picture in terms of photographs and drawings with messages indicating the need to have a guiding policy on ECCE. The results from the event will be well documented and shared with the parliamentarians during the advocacy sessions.


Handbook on Child Participation in Parliament (corrected)

The new Handbook on Child Participation in Parliament - the latest collaboration between the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) and UNICEF is now available on the TEN/MET website.

The handbook provides parliamentarians with information on a variety of effective mechanisms to ensure that children’s participation in parliaments is meaningful, reflects the voices of the most marginalized, and contributes to policies, laws and budgets that will help correct the disparities and inequalities that have an impact on the well-being of children.
