This guide from CRS/Zimbabwe addresses child participation in many aspects of programming. Child participation is one of the guiding principles of the convention on the rights of the child and increasing the scope and level of child participation should be an objective for every education or child protection program. This guide presents many useful suggestions for ways to increase child participation, but what is required most of all is a belief in the value of child participation and a commitment to making it happen in a meaningful way. This guide highlights examples of how four of CRS/Zimbabwe's HIV/AIDS partners facilitate child participation in their education programming: Mavambo Trust, Uzumba Orphan Care, Nzeve School for the Deaf and J.F. Kapnek Trust.
