BackgroundThis educational manual is a result of a long-term partnership between Partners Bulgaria Foundation and the Human Rights Academy, Norway. It is implemented under the Enhancing Democratic Competence and Understanding of Human Rights among Young People project.

Partners have acknowledged the young people’s need of better understanding of human rights and the necessity for development of accessible educational materials.

At the end of 2019 Partners Bulgaria Foundation conducted a study on young people’s opinion on human rights in Bulgaria. It involved over 800 children and young people from the country.

The results have shown that young people believe human rights are of the utmost importance. They want human rights education to be in the formal schools education system and the content to be presented in an interesting, interactive and meaningful way.
