Child participation involves children's right and freedom to express their views on matters and decisions that concern them. Crucially, those views must also be taken into account in order for participation efforts to be meaningful and effective. What's more, we know that successful participation both protects and empowers children.

 

In this How We Care series, we present the models of three of our Members and the work they are doing to promote children's agency and participation in their respective regions: Butterflies in India; Legal Services for Children (LSC) in the USA; and JUCONI in Mexico.
