Call to take pledge for making child-friendly country

Call to take pledge for making child-friendly country

With a slogan ‘Let us commit to make a child-friendly country by protecting child rights’, speakers at a human chain programme stressed on putting priority to the rights of children for ensuring a better future for the children.   As children comprise over 40per cent of our total population, they deserve utmost consideration in national programmes and policies, they said while addressing the event in front of the National Press Club yesterday.    They demanded implementation of the Children Act 2013, which was enacted to establish the rights of children.  

Drawing attention to the policymakers, they demanded action for ending all kinds of repression on children and ensuring mental, physical and social growth of children. If the children are protected, the country will also remain protected, they added.       

They said that all concerned, including the government, take action for child rights now, once and for all. They must commit to make sure every child, has every right. Addressing the event, held marking the World Children’s Day yesterday (Nov 20), they said the day offers each of us an inspirational entry-point to advocate, promote and celebrate children's rights, translating into dialogues and actions that will build a better world for children.  On behalf of Prevention of Child Trafficking through Strengthening Community and Networking (PCTSCN) Consortium, Social and Economic Enhancement Programme (SEEP), a member of the consortium, organised the event. About 100 children from different educational institutions in the capital took part in the programme.   

Advocate Rafiqual Islam Khan, manager (policy and legal support) of INCIDIN Bangladesh, Sharifullah Reaz, coordinator of Community Participation and Development (CPD), Tarik Mohammad Gaddafi, coordinator of Social and Economic Enhancement Programme (SEEP), Momenul Haque, coordinator of Nari Maitree, and children from different schools, spoke at the event.
