Aside of the country sessions, there were capacity-building opportunities, events, trainings and other activities for civil society and crucially, children, to participate!
Child Rights Connect activities in Samoa
Child Rights Connect was present in Samoa and our main goal was to strengthen civil society in the Pacific from the grassroots level in a long-term, sustainable way. We launched a call to mobilization and organised capacity building activities for civil society including children: pre-session and session debriefings, a training on CRC reporting, briefings for children.
