Child Awareness Campaign run by NRI Sunil Kothari
“Jaago Bachcho Jaago (Awaken Children Awaken)” Due to the ever-increasing violence against children, the state-level awareness programme called “Jaago Bachcho Jaago” was organized on this day at Adarsh Vidya Mandir School, Beawar city, with the kind help, support and cooperation of well-known businessman, philanthropist and social worker Mr. Sunil Kothari.
Local dignitaries of the campaign city were present at the programme. The director of this programme, Vandana Srivastava, informed the children about their child rights and made them aware of Good Touch, Bad Touch; Safe Touch, Unsafe Touch, by showing them a beautiful motion picture. Regarding POCSO(Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012, is an Indian legislation that regulates child sexual abuse) and child trafficking, Vandana Srivastava went on to say that the government and the administration are trying their best to stop this crime in every way, but children, parents and guardians also need to be vigilant about this crime. The more children are aware and alert about their child rights, the more child crimes will be on the decline. In order to stop child trafficking, Komal Swami ji said that on the pretext of good salary, good job etc., people hand over their children into wrong hands without checking or acquiring complete information, which is why the possibility of incidents of serious crimes like child trafficking and POCSO are likely to take place. Hence, to prevent such crimes, everybody should be alert and not let their children fall into wrong hands without deriving the right information. On this occasion, the children were inspired by listening to the beautiful song ‘Chuppi Todo (break your silence)’ by local volunteer Sanjay Singh Gehlot.
In the programme, Principal Naveen Saini ji, alongwith Kavita Sharma, Mamta Sharma and coordinator of ‘Jago Marudhar Jago’ Institute, Neha, also shared their thoughts with the children regarding child safety. After the completion of the programme, the girls also showcased a wonderful cultural presentation.
