we advocate for the protection of the rights of refugee children
our advocacy activities
The Three2Six Project believes that it is important for refugee children to have the opportunity to share their experiences, stories and opinions in their own voices. It is however important that this is done in a safe way, ensuring their privacy and dignity are respected. Each year, the Three2Six Project offers the children an opportunity to participate in an advocacy activity where they can express themselves and share a little of their story with you in the hope of increasing tolerance, understanding, inclusion and ultimately a celebration of diversity.
Precieuse is a story about a refugee’s journey from their home country to South Africa. This particular story is a compilation of experiences written and produced by our Three2Six learners. Precieuse’s story was developed during the 2011 Holiday Program using a stop-gap animation process facilitated by Mindburst.
Precieuse 2 is a story about a refugee’s experiences in South Africa. This particular story is a compilation of experiences written and produced by our Three2Six learners. Precieuse’s story was developed during the 2017 Holiday Program using a stop-gap animation process facilitated by Mindburst.
Journey with an artist
During some of our Holiday Programs our children explored their own experiences and the theme of children’s rights through a workshop process with an artist. Their pieces are shared through the art books ‘Refugee Stories’, ‘A sense of self, a sense of place’, and ‘Migrating Imaginations’.
A sense of self
This art book compiles the art work done by the project’s learners during their annual holiday programme. It was developed in 2014.
Roundtable on migrant children
In 2018, the project hosted a roundtable on migrant children and the right to education in partnership with the Catholic Parliamentary Liaison Office and Sacred Heart College.
The kitoko radio project in 2019 encouraged learners to speak in public which developed their communication skills and their critical thinking, and served as a tool to share their voices.
