This GenPeace human rights education project is made possible through the Karapatan sa Malikhaing Paraan (KaSaMa) with support from the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Manila.
GenPeace Human Rights Playschool provides basic education on the Universal Declaration on Human Rights (UDHR) as well as providing fun to young people while learning. The educational offering of GenPeace Human Rights Playschool focuses on values, attitudes and beliefs about human rights and respect to dignity. Repackaging formal workshops into facilitated “playshops” highlights significant human rights issues experienced by the youth particularly discrimination based on social, cultural and religious differences.
The Human Rights Game Kit – The design of the interactive games and board game maximizes the use of structured and facilitated playshops. The creative use of structured experiences contributed significantly to create an exciting form of learning. GenPeace Human Rights Playschool focused on utilizing various forms of games to teach UDHR catering to the audience and the need for understanding the concept of human rights in a fun and creative way.
GenPeace Human Rights Playschool Game Kit are also available to partners at Php 500.00 for the sustainability of the program in conducting Human Rights Playshops in the communities and public schools.
Conference on Youth, Peace and Security and the Bangsamoro
Organized by Generation Peace Youth Network (GenPeace)
In partnership with Gaston Z. Ortigas Peace Institute (GZOPI)
June 12 and 13, 2015, Millenia Suites, Ortigas, Pasig City
We – 30 students and youth leaders, gathered in Goldland Millenia Suites, Ortigas Center, Pasig City, from 12th to 13th of June 2015 for the Conference on Youth, Peace and Security, and the Bangsamoro believe that we are in a critical point in the road to achieving just and sustainable peace in Mindanao. We see the issues and challenges in the peace process as an opportunity for us to be proactive in our role to contribute to peace building in our country.
We reaffirm our support for the implementation of the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB) and the immediate passage of a CAB-based Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL). We commit to continue our engagement in a youth-led advocacy to promote collective action in raising awareness of the importance of our role in the peace process. We believe that there should be expanded and safe democratic spaces for the youth to participate in effective peaceful transformations by investing on education, health, and economy.
As essential partners for peace, we will work towards a meaningful participation of the youth in the peace process. We hope that the voice of the youth will be included in peace and security issues, as we move forward for a lasting peace in our society. ###
