Felipe was made aware about the violation of the rights of children and now fights to make the community, city, state and country a better place to live, through the participation of children. He carried out a set of actions to mobilize and engage children to prevent and eradicate child labour and to guarantee the youth’s right to participate in discussions of public policies that affect them; meetings of adolescents and youth for prevention and eradication of child labour. The project was expanded throughout Brazil, with the holding of the First National Meeting of Adolescents and Youth for the prevention and eradication of child labour and the creation of the National Committee. In addition to state meetings, regional meetings are also held. The project includes, among others, the mobilizing of schools to hold meetings with students on the eradication of child labour.
