    Advocacy on Children's Rights
    The project aimed to create awareness on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child among different target groups. A variety of communication solutions were developed including posters, comic books, an innovative desk calendar cum directory of services for children.



Poster

An illustrated, interactive poster highlighting 10 rights of children. This was targeted at English speaking urban school children. Children had to tick the rights that they enjoyed and try and think whether the same rights were being enjoyed by their servants child or not.

Desk Calendar

The desk calendar cum directory comprised a set of 52 cards (one for each week). Each week appeared on a separate card raising a child's right as an illustration. The other side of each card was used as a directory of services for children all across India. The cards were packaged in a cassette cover, easy to display and store.

Comic Books on Children's Issues

To help urban school children understand children's issues/ rights and about the lives of other children - a series of comic books were planned.

The themes for the first two of the series were child marriage (Jolt in Jaipur) and child sexual abuse (Scandal in School).
