This essay intends to describe and analyze the work of Save the Children through, self-reinforcing conversations groups in two projects called Ellen and Allan. The projects are based on the Convention on the Rights of the Child CRC and focus on individual rights and gender equality.The purpose of this study is to gain an understanding of why Save the Children believes that young people need more knowledge of their rights and gender equality, although there is a gender difference of the project, and their activities as theory is put into practice.The thesis uses qualitative method, in order to get a more in-depth understanding of this project, based on interviews.The theoretical framework considers the concepts of gender, Equality of opportunity, individual rights perspective (CRC) Education Act, heteronormativity and empowerment; all are values given great importance in these projects.Youth theory is also considered because certain knowledge of developmental psychology is necessary when young people are involved.The results indicate that the projects Ellen and Allan perform an important function as young people use this forum and discuss the project´s “values”. In this so called “free arena” major issues of identity are addressed. But there is a critical view of an organization because the discussions are led by young people without education.But there is a critical view of the project, it is run by young people without education. That teach and education the CRC and treat the identity issues of the young people where there is also a large actuating possibility because of the development phase youngsters just are in. Although Ellen and Allan same project as Save the Children, there are clear differences, especially the way they treat and deal with the different subjects depending if it is treated with girls or guys.
