The project “My Gender Rights” has developed a toolkit made of five open educational and training tools about gender equality and inclusion of unaccompanied minors. The approach we suggest is particularly relevant for young migrants as they have grown up in countries with a different legislation and a different point of view regarding gender equality, compared to the European one.
The project is carried out in six countries, each very concerned by the migrant crisis: Bulgaria, France, Germany, Italy, Turkey, and United Kingdom. The transnational approach enriches the efficiency of the project contrasting the different maturity of each national context in addressing gender equality and the welcoming of unaccompanied minors.
Through “My Gender rights” the partnership aims to achieve important objectives:
– sensitise and educate unaccompanied minors as well as professionals and young volunteers caring for them.
– provide youth workers and young volunteers caring for unaccompanied minors with the skills necessary to work with them in a gender-egalitarian way.
– educate unaccompanied minors in a gender egalitarian perspective with regards to their rights and their future social and working life.
– provide care centres and organisations caring for unaccompanied minors with appropriate educational and training tools.
These objectives have been pursued through the development of five training and educational tools:
– E-Learning course treating gender equality issues addressed to youth organisations and centres caring for unaccompanied minors
– Educational Cartoon on gender equality
– Video Testimonials from former unaccompanied minors
– Playing Workshop on gender equality for unaccompanied minors created with the contribution of their peers
– Guide on gender equality for the newcomers created with the contribution of their peers.
