Sharjah Making Schools More Friendly

by Eddie Rayner

Sharjah Baby Friendly Office (SBFO), Sharjah Private Education Authority (SPEA) and Sharjah Education Council (SEC) will launch a ‘Child-Friendly Schools (CFS)’ initiative, in collaboration with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

Key elements of CFS are:

  • Raising awareness on child rights
  • Supporting children’s participation in initiatives
  • Protecting children from all forms of violence and abuse
  • The integration of children with special needs into mainstream education

The Emirate of Sharjah recently celebrated their first anniversary of being named the Middle East’s first Child-Friendly City by UNICEF. Click here to read more and see what some residents have to say.
