You have right! - CRC – Anti-Discrimination Grant - 2008-2009


According to a UNICEF study 23% of the Hungarian children are not aware of one of the children’s rights, although the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) has been ratified by Hungary and since 1991 it is part of our legal system. About the knowledge of the professionals working with children on Children’s Rights no study has been made.


In the framework of „The Civil Society and the Implementation of the Anti- discrimination Act” Programme co-financed by the European Union Pre-Accession Funds our Association (Family, Child, Youth Association -FCYA) has obtained a grant and developed a project called “Van jogod!” (“You have the right”).


We developed training programs and piloted it on the rights of the child to prevent discrimination and raise awareness on its importance.
