Children’s Rights and ACEI’s Love Me, Teach Me Campaign
By Katie-Jay Scott Stauring, Meenakshi Dahal, & Aurelia Di Santo
The Love Me, Teach Me Campaign was first produced by ACEI in 2010. The campaign was created to help all those who care for and teach children to be aware of and support children’s rights. This campaign is still relevant today, as we consider how to ensure that children’s rights are understood and protected in communities throughout the world.

Toward the end of January, iACT’s program associate Julia and I traveled to Chad to connect with our teammates living in the Darfuri refugee camps located in the eastern part of the country. We were there for a couple weeks, and the camps we stopped in were Am Nabak, Touloum, Iridimi, Djabal, and Goz Amer. We refer to this trip as “iACT33” because members of the iACT family, starting with our founder Gabriel Stauring, have now gone to Chad 33 times. Gabriel’s first trip was in 2005, and Katie-Jay later joined him for several visits.
By the afternoon, the consensus was encapsulated by what one humanitarian worker in Bangui told us, “This is CAR. It is always high risk.”
