The Canadian organization Right To Play designs and develops programs and resources that use sport and play as a tool for learning around child rights and protection.
The Creating a Safer World Resource consists of four separate but interconnected manuals designed to promote policy change, curriculum development, and teacher training. The manuals focus on four areas: basic education and child development, health promotion and disease prevention, conflict resolution and peace education, and community development.
Three manuals have been designed to support the implementation of the Creating a Safer World Workshop, which introduces active participation of children in decision-making in the home, school and community. The fourth manual focuses on gender equality.
There are trainer and play-based learning manuals, a workshop participant workbook, and a gender equality manual. They are very large documents (the largest has 432 pages), but, once downloaded, you will have a wealth of information to use as you see fit.
The manuals can be downloaded free of charge in English and in French. First, go to this address: http://www.righttoplay.com/International/our-impact/resourcerequest/Pages/ResourceOrderForm.aspx. You will then be asked to submit some basic information about yourself, and the links to the manuals will be sent to you via email.
