The end of 2022 is an opportunity to reflect on how far ACT2gether has come in the different sites. ACT2gether Latin America and its work in Bolivia is a successful example of how hard work pays off and how important it is to continue working for and with children.
Throughout this year, ACT2gether Latin America has accompanied children in different projects, ensuring their voices are heard in their quest to defend their rights, improve their communities, strengthen leadership, and guarantee better conditions for all children.
Numerous projects have been executed in different areas, some of which are:
Governability and participation
Influence and leadership
Communication for social transformation
In partnership with PICA (Intelligent Programs with Adolescents)
As a final act in 2022, ACT2gether Latin America has made a formal presentation of guidelines for establishing student governments -in a partnership with Educo– and for the creation of Children’s Committees – in collaboration with UNICEF. These documents were designed for children and adults who accompany the processes behind creating participation spaces; however, they are also aimed at public authorities.
The team in Bolivia also supported the Second Assembly of the National Committee of Children, which took place in Santa Cruz and gathered children representatives from all over the country.
All these events, planned from a fun, holistic and intergenerational approach, set a precedent for promoting child participation in the country.
