CHILD RIGHTS AWARENESS PROGRAM

CSN Rural team conducted an awareness programme on Child Rights for the Aanganwadi Teachers and workers at Kankipadu Mandal Office. Nearly 270 members from Vijayawada Rural, Penamaluru mandal and Kankipadu mandal participated in this programme in the programme. Mrs. Uma Devi, CDPO, ICDS was the chief guest and NJBB Programme Manager Mr. Malleshwara Rao also attended this programme.

 

Every month the aanganwadi teachers and workers gather at one place either in Penamaluru mandal or in Kankipadu mandal for general review. This month the CSN Rural team took initiative to make people in large number aware of Child Rights and child safety mechanisms as there are many new enrollments in the group.

 

To start with the guests were invited and Mrs. Jhansi Lakshmi explained about the concept and aim of Child safety net programme in 10 villages of Penamaluru mandal and a brief introduction about the vocational courses including EDP. She briefed about the free evening tuition centers to help the poor and needy children to get quality education and the children parliaments which help children to develop leadership qualities and social responsibility. She told about the functioning of Children parliaments and how children identify the issues in their areas and find solutions with the help of village authorities.

 

Mrs. Jhansi has thrown a light on the social evils like child labour, child marriage, child trafficking etc. and at the end she briefed about the Neethodu and Hitaishi programmes for the support of HIV/AIDS infected and affected people and for family counseling.

 

Following this Mr. Malleswararao NJBB Program Manager explained that about the services to children through Navajeevan Bala Bhavan. He told about the rescue and rehabilitation programmes and institutional care provided by NJBB. Then he explained about the four basic rights of a child approved by the UN and juvenile justice act – Care and Protection

 

Right to Survival: 

  • Child is entitled to the rights from the mother's womb
  • Every child has a right to take birth
  • No one should encourage Abortions
  • There should be no discrimination among the boy and the girl

 

 

Right to protection These rights include protection from all forms of child abuse, neglect, exploitation and cruelty, including the right to special protection in times of war and protection from abuse in the criminal justice system.

 

  • Should receive special help to physically and psychologically recover and reintegrate into society. Particular attention should be paid to restoring the health, self-respect and dignity of the child.

 

Right to Development

They include rights to adequate food, shelter, clean water, formal education, primary health care, leisure and recreation, cultural activities and information about their rights

 

  • “The right to development is a human right by virtue of which every human is entitled to participate in, contribute to, and enjoy economic, social, cultural and political development, in which all human rights and fundamental freedoms can be fully realized.”
  • (Article 1.1, Declaration on the Right to Development) “The human right to development also implies the full realization of the right of peoples to self-determination, which includes, subject to the relevant provisions of both International Covenants on Human Rights, the exercise of their inalienable right to full sovereignty over all their natural wealth and resources.”

 

Right to Participation:

  • Children are entitled to the freedom to express opinions and to have a say in matters affecting their social, economic, religious, cultural and political life. Participation rights include the right to express opinions and be heard, the right to information and freedom of association.  Engaging these rights as they mature helps children bring about the realization of all their rights and prepares them for an active role in society.

 

At the end of the programme the ICDS supervisor Mrs. Sai Geetha thanked the CSN Rural team for conducting the awareness programme and making everyone aware of the child rights. She expressed that the information given to them will help them to understand the issues of children and deal with them carefully in the best interest of the child. She also appreciated the services of NJBB for care and protection.
