Walkathon- walk along for child rights organise by Bal Suraksha Abhiyan
In order to mark the 22nd year when India ratified the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) in 1992, Bal Suraksha Abhiyan organized a walkathon-walk along for child rights in Algarah Public Ground today. Algarah high school, Algarah primary school, St. Mary’s and other students from children’s club participated in the walk for rights.

The walkathon started from two different routs i.e. from 18th Mile to Algarah public ground and from Pedong till the public ground carrying different banners with the mantra of Right to protection, Right to participation, Right to development and Right to survival-the four categories covers all civil, political, economical and cultural rights of every child.

Around 250 children along with the public of few communities marched towards the ground to create awareness of the cause in solidarity for Rights of children. However Pedong’s Brigadier threw light on the rights of children, he said ‘every child should be given their entitlements and freedom without curtailing the limitations.’ He also assured to serve the public anytime in need, ‘If anyone feels that Army’s can assist the public in any social causes please let us know, we are ready to help everyone’ he added.  

The purpose of the event was to mark the Silver Jubilee of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) at the International level and 22nd  year in India as a signatory country, it is believed that today the conventions has been ratified by 192 countries where the convention puts genuine emphasis on the ‘need to protect children’s right as early as possible in their lives.’

However Sister Subeshna Thapa, the director of BSA said that many rights have been established in India in the last 22 years, but without a practical implementation of any right, a child will never be free from the circumference of inequitableness. Adding to that she said Governments should do many things to preserve the rights of Children, ‘Making law is not going to reduce the problem which children are facing today.’ said Thapa.
