Building Welcoming and Inclusive Communities in a Diverse World
This year, girls and boys like Pamithi and Shehana in Sri Lanka were able to develop the skills they need to approach a changing world with open minds. Women like Soraya in Colombia were empowered to take on leadership roles and mobilize their communities in the peace process. Networks of solidarity were strengthened in Msaranga, Tanzania, engaging key actors to come together to address the issues of gender-based violence and violence against children. Canadian children like Veronica, Jaden and their classmates in Montreal were exposed to topics they don’t come across in textbooks and, through fun games, learned about human rights values such as inclusion and respect for diversity.
