Our project "Protecting the Rights of the Children" aims to create an innovative online platform for young people that, through visualized information, will clarify the rights of minors who are survivors of violence or those who are in conflict with the law. The platform will prepare them for the process of going through the so-called "Blue rooms" for interrogation and hearing of children.
We strive to put the rights of the child at the center and the responsibility of the state in guaranteeing them. The platform will visualize the work of the police, the court, the prosecutor's office and the social services in the stages of the interrogation, involving volunteer youth in order to ensure that the platform is adapted to the needs of the youth. Information will be prepared in a language understandable to children how they can participate in legal proceedings or directly - as a defendant, victim, witness, or indirectly - when decisions have an impact on their lives.
The idea of the project is to create conditions to prevent the victimization and trauma of young people for life, by giving them knowledge of their rights in an understandable, tolerant and modern language.
The project is financed by Telus International Bulgaria.
