The beginning of the second quarter of the Amics del Nepal’s Experiential Learning (EL) project took place on August 5th within the Activity Centre premises. The focus of this second session was to educate all EL students on the vital subject of child rights and to provide them with opportunities to engage in-depth analysis of this issue, fostering critical thinking skills. Currently in the EL project, a total of 17 students are in attendance from grades eight, nine, and ten, all exhibiting a strong curiosity and enthusiasm to gain an understanding of child rights.
The EL session started with a series of enjoyable activities where the students did a reflection on the first quarter-final events and shared their memorable moments with the Amics team followed by introduction to the concept of child rights. As the session progressed, the students also learned about the responsibilities and shared their thoughts on the topic. To make the class more engaging, the students applied their critical thinking skills to visually depict various challenges encountered by children within Nepalese society regardless of child rights. They shared their thoughts on the subject matter with the help of drawings while explaining their chosen concerns on issues related to child rights. These EL sessions run every Saturday at Amics Activity Centre guided by theme-based activities. The second quarter’s session will also embrace a dual purpose: rekindling the student’s intellectual engagement through fun activities while also encouraging them to use their creativity and critical thinking for more interactive learning. The upcoming EL sessions will prompt students to think critically about the child rights-related issues and solutions directed to the sessions’ final event.
This project is possible thanks to the support of all the members of Amics del Nepal and the collaborating partners:
