Abstract: The author is Coordinator of the ‘Participation of children and adolescents’ project of Centros Comunitarios de Aprendizaje (CECODAP). CECODAP has a long record of successfully developing processes to enable children to come together, explore and discuss matters that concern them, and go on to develop activities that allow their voices to be heard and their actions to make a difference. In this article, she discusses the CECODAP-initiated democratic processes that led to the establishment of children’s organisations and shows how these organisations impacted directly on the drafting of new legislation about child rights in Venezuela.
