What is SCEAD?

SCEAD stands for Space for Children in Education Art and Development Space for Children
Each child has the right to play, to go to school, and to dream. Adults bear the responsibility, as guardians of childhood, for making that possible. SCEAD offers a unique opportunity to engage a wide range of community actors and organizations in the promotion of social justice and universally recognized human and labour rights.

Education…
Access to basic education is a fundamental right that is denied to millions of children. Not only is poverty a cause of child labour, child labour also causes poverty. Free universal primary education is one of the main ways to break this vicious cycle, which is the aim of the second Millennium Development Goal reinforced by the Education. Education has a fundamental role to play in personal and social development and in promoting a strong sense of personal responsibility for the attainment of common, global goals.

The education process in the SCEAD quips young people with knowledge and information twinned with the tools, skills, and confidence to take action and to publicly inform members of their communities about what they have learned. SCEAD finds its foundations in the four pillars of the education approach - “learning to know, learning to do, learning to live together and learning to be” (Learning: The Treasure Within, by Jacques Delors). This learning process impacts upon the perceptions of young people and their communities and leads to changes in attitudes and behavior. Through this process, young people will come to realize and fulfill their potential as agents of social change within their communities and to acquire a sense of “global citizenship” – thinking globally and acting locally. Education through entertainment is one of our major activities in this regards.

Arts…
Art is a powerful medium to educate and inform communities on the issue of child labour, its causes, implications and consequences. SCEAD learning process is deeply rooted in the arts, whether visual, literary or performing, making it a particularly powerful tool for reaching young people. It combines fun and entertainment with a means to develop confidence, memory, self-discipline and self-esteem. SCEAD helps people to express themselves in a wide range of different and creative ways and in a manner specific to their culture and traditions. In addition, SCEAD reaches out to the wider community and invites local artists, journalists, academics and others to play an active role in the implementation process, working through a community-based approach.

Development
Our philosophy is built on years of child development research which shows that while each child is “pre-wired” with certain traits, temperament and abilities, it’s the interaction with their environment, so we at SCEAD try to give the best. which ultimately determines how these characteristics are manifested as they grow and develop into competent adults.
Development is the result of “transactions” between the child and his/her environment. Each transaction results in new learning which results in the development of skills and traits. The right frequency, quality and intensity of interactions between children and their environment will result in each child reaching his or her full potential
