Rights Respecting Schools Raising Awareness Day 2016


A typical classroom in rural Guatemala.

This morning, the Broadway site held a special assembly raising awareness about children's rights. Following that, the children watched a short film called 'Living on $1'. The film was set in rural Guatemala and it followed the journey of four young American men living on $1 a day which is the reality for 1.1 billion people in the world. Children learnt about how difficult it is to receive an education, healthy food, healthcare and clean water when living in such difficult circumstances. Every class took part in a critical discussion about the similarities and differences between the lives of the children in rural Guatemala and their lives in London.
