Deoghar rolls out project to safeguard child rights on I-Day | Ranchi News


Dumka: The Deoghar administration launched a special project on the occasion of 75th Independence Day on Sunday to protect vulnerable children from child labour, abuse, trafficking, child marriage and other types of crime by implementing various government schemes for them.
Titled ‘Project Panchi’, deputy commissioner Manjunath Bhajantri said that they decided to roll out the project to give freedom to the kids from prejudice and discrimination and enable them to grow and realise their own potential in a hassle-free environment. He added, “Panchi in English means a bird which is symbolic of freedom.”
As a first step, DC has directed authorities concerned to revive village child Protection committees (VCPCs). “August 30 has been fixed as the deadline for activation of all VCPCs in nearly 2,000 revenue villages of the district,” he said.
He has also directed the representatives of various NGOs to establish a proper coordination with each other for better results and emphasised on the role of civil society to eradicate crimes against children. “With collective efforts, vulnerable children can be prevented from falling prey to different social menace and help them enjoy their childhood and succeed in life,” he said.
