Over 40 years of educating about law, democracy, and human rights
Street Law /
In 2008-2009, Street Law, Inc. partnered with UNICEF to encourage a culture of peace, an understanding of human rights, and civic literacy in Nepal through training workshops and curricula development. The ultimate goal of the program was to integrate civic education and human rights into the nation’s curricular framework from kindergarten to high school.
Street Law and UNICEF developed a program to help Nepal achieve the following:
To accomplish this Street Law collaborated with Nepal’s Ministry of Education, Curriculum Development Centre, National Centre for Educational Development, Non Formal Education Centre, UNICEF, and Save the Children. The process included the involvement of consultative groups including the Dalit Welfare Organization and the Bikalpa Gyan Tatha Bikas Kendra Nepal, a nonprofit providing education and resources for rural women.
In September 2008, Street Law worked with curriculum writers and consultative groups to develop lessons for the non-formal education courses.
In July 2009, Street Law worked with all the partners groups at an acceleration workshop. The goal was to update and harmonize activities going on in both formal and non-formal educational settings and to create action plans for classroom implementation.
