My opinion

Some time ago we had several lessons on children’s rights. A visiting organization taught the staff and later the girls on this subject. One of the questions during the follow-up, taken care of by our staff, was what the children thought of their rights and what they personally would like to have improved or changed. It took a while before the girls dared to write something, but after some encouragement there was enough useful information and confirmation of what we had already seen and things we had never even acknowledged. The girls felt heard, and they were happy to be able to say what they thought. We got to work with their answers as a team, and we will grant their wishes as best we can. Of course, there will always be things we cannot accomplish, but those we can discuss with the girls because we value their opinion.
