Child Labour Protection
More than 150 million children worldwide are still working as child labourers and a staggering 100 million at least, are subject to its worst forms. As per the National Census 2011, there are close to 8.7 million child labourers in India, in the age group of 5 to 14 years.10.13 million child labourers between 5-14 years in India (2011 Census data).
Girl Child Protection
In many parts of India, the birth of a girl child is not welcomed. Right from her arrival, she faces discrimination, humiliation, and oppression at every stage of life. When it comes to healthcare, education and growth opportunities, she is neglected because of her gender. Some manage to survive and foster new paths to follow. Most, however, surrender hopelessly to the sad fate assigned to them.
Education is one of the most effective agents of change in society. When a child is able to go to school today, he or she sets off a cycle of positive change. But, thousands of children in India lack access to education and can’t even write their own names.
Child Marriage Protection
The legal age for marriage in India is 18 years for girls and 21 years for boys. The flouting of this law is obviously punishable. But that does not stop child marriage from being rampant across the country even in this day and age. It is often a manifestation of gender inequality, reflecting social norms that perpetuate discrimination against girls.
