Text to be distributed among future coaches of Khetanes Juniors:
Participating coordinators or coaches who are in contact with groups of children or youngsters, are requested to sign up at www.khetanes.org. Thus, they will be able to create pages for their "own" groups of Juniors, who – each as a group – will then also participate as a Khetanes website member.
In the nearest future we may have e.g. the following members:
"Khetanes Juniors Italy"
"Khetanes Juniors Hungary"
"Khetanes Juniors Romania"
And so on, and so further…
Content of the individual page:
Profile of the youth (age, type of school, residence)
Name of coordinator/inviter
Email address (Hotmail? A new one?)
Photo: groups photo/drawing or logo
As Khetanes members, all Juniors have the opportunity to start a blog on www.khetanes.org, to post comments, photos and videos that can be seen by all. Members as well as visitors of the site.
I suggest that all Khetanes Juniors groups have their own blog, in which they report on daily activities, ambitions, plans and hopes for the future.
They will be able to illustrate with photos and more.
In case they have concrete ambitions in the field of arts or science, they may contact one of the adult Khetanes members and interview e.g. writers, painters or filmmakers. All those are role models. How did they manage as youngsters to fulfill their ambitions and dreams, how do they cope with racism and Romaphobia?
Bringing into the open ambitions, fears and skills, will not be enough. The rights of children must be implemented. With all adults involved, including legal experts and human rights activist on Khetanes, we will confer on an effective follow-up.
