After the successful completion of the first academic year 2011/2012 of DPPCR and graduating 25 students, FEPS staff was ready to start the first semester of the second academic year 2012/2013 and teaching the first four modules: 1. Children Rights & the Law 2. Researching Children (Methodology) 3. Children Rights Advocacy 4. Growing Up in the Arab World This semester there are 35 students enrolled in DPPCR, this number reflects the increase of interest in the subject in Cairo and in Egypt at large. The backgrounds of our students are varied with many development practitioners (employed in both NGO’s and Governmental bodies), lawyers, journalists, and accountants. We have an especially high turn out from the National Council for Childhood and Motherhood for the second year in a row, as well as a new partnership with the Egyptian Ministry of Youth. The educational background of our students is also impressive with students coming from different faculties ranging from political science, commerce, mass communication, law, psychology, arts, social work, Islamic studies, engineering and even physical education. We wish that our students would gain the maximum benefits from DPPCR, and that we would also learn from them, to be able to build a cadre of practitioners working with and for children equipped to be strong advocates for the advancement of children’s rights.
