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.
