Neighbourhood Watch

An important task for World's Children's Prize Child Rights Ambassadors is to inform about and support children's rights where they live. They also keep an eye on their surroundings and intervene if children are subjected to violations.

As a Child Rights Ambassador you can promote respect for the rights of the child amongst your neighbours. You can, for example:

  • Support children in neighbouring families, letting them know they have rights and give support to those in need.
  • Inform neighbour, parents, uncles, aunts and grand parents, about childrenʼs rights and equal rights for girls.
  • Visit neighbours where children are not going to school or are at risk of being married off etc.. Share information and offer support.
  • Share stories and facts on children's rights with their families and friends. Find hat you need in The Globe or on this website.

  • Visit neighbours and read stories from The Globe or this website to kids and adults amongst your neighbours.
  • Be a good friend, listen to your neighbours and support them.
  • Do you have a friend in a neighbouring family who seems sad, has to work too much or needs advice in any way. Talk to her first, before approaching her family.

    Keep an eye out for children being mistreated, and address wrongdoings if they occur. Do not put yourself or anyone else at risk. If you are unsure about how to act, talk to an adult that you trust. Always treat others in the way that you like to be treated.
