Child-Safety

In an effort to keep children away from the innumerable perils awaiting them in society and make them aware of the dangerous issues, Childline, in association with the Social Justice Department and Education Department, is reaching out to school students through posters. Social Justice Minister M K Muneer carried out the official release of the posters at Government Model Boys Higher Secondary School in the city on Wednesday.

 Each poster bears messages on child labour, forced child begging, child abuse, neglect towards children, need for educating children and psychological problems as themes.

 “One poster will be displayed inside one classroom. In this way, the message will reach 38 lakh school students from standard one onwards in the state. The posters are designed by Childline,” said Fr Thomas P D, director of Childline.

By March end, the posters will be shown in all schools in the  state. The posters have an attention-grabbing picture and message.

 As part of the inauguration, an awareness class on child rights was held by Childline for the children of the school.

V N Jithendran, Director of Social Justice department; Fr Philip Parakkat, member of Child Rights Commission and Shaji M P, principal of the school and Sujana, headmistress, were also present.
