Children’s Day Celebration at Uda Mattala Vidyalaya

IYAP Celebrated the World Children’s Day at Uda-Mattala Vidyalaya, Thissamaharamaya on the 09th of October 2017, supported by Gudppl & British Council Sri Lanka Active Citizens – Sri-Lanka. This project is a part of the Peace in Action initiative supported by Active Citizens – British Council Sri Lanka. Thank you Mandula Fonseka for your generous donation to make this possible. This event was organised to celebrate and give awareness of Child’s rights. The day started with Art Competition among the children and then a football game. The closing event was graced by the principal , villagers and parents and village officers where prizes were awarded and sessions on UNCRC and National child rights policies in Sri Lanka were briefed to the children and Parents. The opportunity that IYAP gave through this event and celebration is the shift of mindset in young people regarding child rights and firstly knowing what are their rights. We hope to continue this with more workshops and training with the support from our partners and the school. #IYAP #ChildRights #WCD2017 @Childrensday #ActiveCitizens #LK #Youth #YouthBuildingPeace #SDGs #Globalgoals #Gudppl
