Children & Their Rights Children constitute more than one third of the population of India All children are born with fundamental rights And a right to achieve their dreams.
What are Child Rights? Rights holder A right is as an agreement or contract established between the persons who hold a right – referred as the "rights- holders" The persons or institutions which have obligations and responsibilities in relation to the realization of that right - "duty-bearers"
Child rights are specialized human rights that apply to all human beings below the age of 18.
In 1989, The United Nations organised the convention on Child rights and India ratified it on 1992
Right to Survival: A child's right to survival begins before a child is born. The right to survival is inclusive of the child rights to be born, right to minimum standards of food, shelter and clothing, and the right to live with dignity. Right to survival… Right to development… Right to participation… Right to protection…
Right to Participation: A child has a right to participate in any decision making that involves him/her directly or indirectly. There are varying degrees of participation as per the age and maturity of the child.
Right to Development: Children have the right to all forms of development: Emotional, Mental and Physical. Emotional development is fulfilled by proper care and love of a support system, mental development through education and learning and physical development through recreation, play and nutrition.
Right to Protection: A child has the right to be protected from neglect, exploitation, violence and abuse at home, and elsewhere.
The UN finds these rights interdependent and indivisible, meaning that a right cannot be fulfilled at the expense of another right.
Many countries signed the paper and agreed to ensure that their children got these rights. The govt of India too ratified this document on 1992.
Let us come together to uphold the rights of our children
Every day, in every country, girls and boys suffer and witness violence. Violence against children cuts across boundaries of culture, class, education, income and ethnic origin, and occurs in many different settings. While some violence is unexpected and isolated, most violent acts against children are carried out by people they know and should be able to trust Violence against children includes physical violence, psychological violence such as insults and humiliation, discrimination, neglect and maltreatment.
