This January, Dialogue Works successfully hosted its first ever Global Gathering of working Children and Youth in Kigali, Rwanda, a conference for working children and youth representatives to exchange, to learn from one another, to build capacities and share key messages on crosscutting issues affecting the lives of working children and youths. 5 days packed with experiences – here is a sneak peak of impressions, be sure there will be many more to come!
Dialogue Works is happy to announce our campaign’s first ever Global Gathering of working children in Kigali, Ruanda! We are planning an entire week of exchange, learning and action planning for the delegates of all 30 CACs in January 2023. For the first time since we started Time to Talk! in 2016, representatives of all of the 20 partner organizations from various countries around the world will come together.
After she represented Dialogue Works at the V. Global Conference in Durban in May, CAC member Ashley visited Berlin last week. In meetings with politicians, government officials and youth representatives she shared experiences from her daily life as well as from her participation in the Global Conference.
A few weeks after participating in the V. Global Conference for the Elimination of Child Labour in Durban, South Africa, our delegates have looked back on the experience.
In May 2022, South Africa hostet the V. Global Conference for the Elimination of Child Labour – a first on the agenda: a forum dedicated to children’s participation on Thursday, May 19th. Five representatives of the Dialogue Works Global CAC were invited to be a part of this children’s forum and travelled to Durban on short notice to speak up for working children.
