THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The second phase of ‘Our Responsibility to Children’, a project aimed at bringing up socially backward children to the mainstream, got under way in the district. Social Justice Minister K K Shylaja inaugurated the initiative at SMV School, Thampanoor. 


As part of the initiative, implemented by the social justice department through schools, children facing social and psychological difficulties would be identified. These children will be brought to society’s mainstream through necessary social intervention. In addition to the existing 10 schools, the project is being extended to 15 more in the district. 


Inaugurating the second phase, K K Shylaja underscored the need for teachers to try a different approach while interacting with the children. “Classrooms are a cross-section of the society. Hence it need not be practical to have the same kind of approach towards all children. Teachers should pay special attention in identifying students who behave differently. Such kids should  be treated carefully,” the minister said. 


A seminar on ‘ORC and children facing difficulties’ was also held as part of the programme. City Police Commissioner Sparjan Kumar was the chief guest. Corporation councillors Unnikrishnan Nair, M V Vijayalakshmi, social justice department director T V Anupama and other participated.
