The Child Advisory Board consists of 15 schoolchildren aged 13 to 18 from different schools in Tbilisi and SOS Children Village. The training is aimed at increasing the Board members’ knowledge of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and strengthening their advocacy skills. The effectiveness of children's self-government in schools will also be discussed. The training is organised in the framework of Denmark’s Georgia Programme 2010-2013 “Promotion of Judicial Reform, Human and Minority Rights.”
