The children showed a great knowledge of their personal rights which must be a result of the lessons they receive at their schools.

 Similarly, they had a great grasp of the abuses they could suffer, surprisingly including ‘human trafficking’ and sexual abuse by relatives.

 In discussing their goals, they noted the need to participate to help other disadvantaged children in cash or kind.
