You are welcome to CECOD home page, as we invite you to work with us in the struggle to realize the new vision of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) through schools; targeting all social groups for a common and sustainable future.
PROMOTING THE RIGHT TO QUALITY EDUCATION USING ECO-SCHOOLS APPROACH.
The right to education is universal and inalienable and enshrined in international law through
several conventions. Not only do all people have the right to receive quality education but they also have the right to the knowledge and skills that will enable them to contribute economically and socially and lift themselves out of poverty.
Education has been formally recognized as a human right since the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. This has since been affirmed in numerous global human rights treaties, including the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
CECOD FEE Uganda Advocacy will take place at different levels, i.e. at the local level (child led advocacy, community and district), at the national level (ministries and institutions), at the regional level (regional governmental meetings and networks) and at the international level
The Uganda ECO-Schools Rights Based Approach will contribute to empowering rights-holders, e.g. through promotion of school based pupils parliaments as platforms for stimulating pupils active participation in school activities and enhancing their knowledge about (children) rights issues. The pupils parliament concept was already introduced in the 1st Phase of this program which ended in 2013 and has proved to be a catching playground for democratic decision making processes among children.
Using a rights-based approach the programme shall contribute to mobilize and empower communities (parents) to actively take part in, contribute to and demand their rights from local governmental duty-bearers for improving resource allocation to schools and reducing possible inequalities in resource allocations among schools.
