Before anything else, I am a human being. As are these little children. The rights I enjoy are theirs too. They have a right to a home and family, education, healthcare, play time and protection from being exploited. Most of all, they have the right to be children.
A right they are denied, for no fault of theirs.
And so, I pledge to do whatever I can, in my own way, to fight for their right to have a childhood. With my skills, with my resources, with my heart, I will fight for them because I can and they can’t.
Children are the most vulnerable segment of any society. Their situation provides the most stringent metric of a society’s health and a rallying point with the widest appeal across all parts of society.
Ensuring child rights is the most sustainable solution to the myriad social, economic and political issues confronting India. Sustainable change at the level of the community is only possible when communities themselves develop and implement solutions, cooperatively.
