Juvenal is a 16-year-old boy who has always known the value of education. This made him realize that in many countries children do not have access to proper education. When Juvenal was in 7th grade, he led a meeting with other children, talking about their rights and what they can do to help those who are vulnerable. Juvenal had the chance to study a course about children’s rights and advocacy strategies, upon completion of which he was able to advocate in schools and in his community.
