After rumors spread: Many wanted to know more about the Convention on the Rights of the Child


When the Somali youth network organized a lecture on the children's convention, it was filled in at the gathering place the Seed in Eskilstuna.

- We have received questions from many parents about the new law, says Abdirisak Hussein, who works as a teacher in Eskilstuna and is involved in Somali issues.

He says that many felt concern after the rumors and misunderstandings spread that among other things that more children can now be taken care of.

- Much is about lack of information, says Abdirisak Hussein.

Abdirisak Hussein was one of the evening's lecturers.

No major change

Parent Faay Aden Suuley thinks it's a good lecture this way.

- There are many here who have difficulty with the language and there are those who translate incorrectly, she says.

Sirpa Lindelöf, developer at the municipality and Abdirisak Hussein gave the lecture which was in both Swedish and Somali.

They went through what articles in the children's convention constitute the very core and how the municipality should work in relation to the law.

- We have informed the parents that there will be no major differences compared to before and we have disseminated information and knowledge on the subject, says Abdirisak Hussein.

- I already knew that the children's convention was in Sweden, but now it's getting stronger for the children, says Bosteyo Aden Mohamed.

Good for the kids

After the lecture, the lecturers received a lot of questions.

- These were completely different questions than we who are born in Sweden think about, says Sirpa Lindelöf.

- I think it is good that we all protect the children because it is our future, says Bosteyo Aden Mohamed.
