School Improvement Program
School improvement program is an approach to revamp schools, so that all students can achieve success. As a promoter of child centered participatory approach we work with all people who have direct influence on child development, including families, communities, teachers, the government and the children themselves. We use below approach to school improvement, incorporating all of these stakeholders.
The outcome of an effective school improvement program should be child learning. Therefore children are made an active member of all activities of SIP to enhance their own learning process; they also play an important role in their school’s development. We encourage child participation in their schools through Student Representative Councils a platform where students meet together to discuss problems and come up with solutions
Child rights are human rights with additional rights/provisions to safeguard the care, protection, harmonious development and well-being of the child. These are contained in the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and various international treaties and conventions. The Convention on the Rights of the Child is the first legally binding international instrument to incorporate the full range of human rights – civil, cultural, economic, political and social rights. It is a universally agreed set of non – negotiable standards and obligations. With these rights comes the obligation on both governments and individuals not to infringe on the parallel rights of others. It brings together in one treaty all the relevant child rights issues, rather than having them scattered among a number of international treaties. The Convention on the Rights of Child contains 54 articles, each of which details different type of right.
