Child Right Awareness:
Child abuse, child labour, child trafficking, child rape, kidnapping have been increasingly coming to the notice of the general public and the police, but because of lack of proper awareness on child rights and the J.J.Act neither the Department nor the police or the general public were able to react in a justifying manner to such cases.
As such the children are the ones who are suffering without getting proper justice. Hence wide spread awareness programme were carried out on J.J.Act, Child Rights and Child Acts. One such programme was carried out for the Department,Police Personal, Lawyers and other NGOs. Prof. Ravi Verma Kumar- Senior Lawyer of High Court, DR. H.V. Parshwanath- Deputy Commissioner, Mr. G.V.Hedge- Session Judge of D.K. District, Prof. B.K. Ravindra- Principal,SDM Law College were present for this programme. Similar programmes were also carried out in Bantwal, Belthangady, Sulya, Puttur and Mulki at different dates in the year.
To make people understand and be aware of the hardships that a child labourer or street children under go, an Art/ photo exhibition was held at St.Aloysius College Hall. The Photos and Art exhibited were the collections made by the street children themselves. Hence, this programme was more realistic and original.
