Il presente progetto, intitolato “Il diritto all’educazione nei documenti internazionali e il diritto all’educazione ai diritti umani: il caso di i4Life”, è nato in seguito ad esperienze personali vissute all’estero e per porre luce sul tema dei diritti umani, in particolar modo sul tema specifico del diritto all’educazione.
The present work “The right to education in international documents and the right to human rights education: the case of i4Life” results from the personal experience of living and working abroad and the need to shed light on human rights matters, in this particular case on the right to education. The right to education is usually considered as an obligation on behalf of the child to attend school. The meaning of education is usually associated to the theoretical knowledge taught within the school walls, without considering the idea that knowledge may also come from experience and interaction happening outside said walls. One of the main objective of the present work is to analyse the concept of education from a different perspective: the perspective of human rights. Therefore, education is considered in its broadest sense including knowledge, information, skills and competences learnt and developed by a child throughout his whole life, inside and outside the school walls. While writing the present analysis, authentic sources and official publications have been consulted in order to provide the readers with professional information on the matter. For instance, websites of the United Nations and its Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, the European Union and the World Health Organization were consulted such as official Court’s judgements. Moreover, for the writing of the last chapter official documents of i4Life have been consulted such as application forms in order to receive funds and training materials. The second, but not less important, objective of the present work is to provide readers with a real example of human rights implementation. The pilot project of i4Life, an Irish charity operating in Zambia, is presented and explained in details. The educational project implemented by the Charity aims at providing Community Health Workers with knowledge related to human rights and Early Childhood Development and, as a consequence, with the possibility to assess problems related to such topics. If the present “journey” around the right to education starts with theory, it does conclude with a practical example of how education may change knowledge into practice. The reader is provided with a real example of how measures towards the promotion and implementation of human rights can become reality. As a result, awareness is achieved: a direct consequence of education.
