Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This study of the South African prevention programme titled Human Rights Club aims to explore the participating adolescents experience. The method being used is qualitative focus groups interviews. Four focus groups interviews were conducted in different townships around East London, in total 21 respondents participated in the focus groups. The theoretical framework that was used to analyze the result was the concept of socialization, gender and empowerment. The results indicate that the participants experience that the program has contributed to their own personal development, social affiliation, and the ability to help others. The participants experience a change in their views on women's human rights and gender roles. Through advocacy they are spreading the knowledge they have gained to their families, friends, schools and communities. This turns former participants into activists and helps Human Rights Club to reach beyond their participants only.
