World Health Day

Healthy children make for happy children. A child’s right to survival and development is intrinsically linked to the protection of a child’s body and mind. India shall achieve successful child protection when all its children grow up physically and mentally healthy

Elections

Should children be left out, just because they don’t vote?

Mother’s Day

A little girl living in an orphanage had never seen her mother, so she drew on the ground and fell asleep next to her.

Happy mothers day to all mothers near and far who make us feel safe and loved. #happymothersday#children #india

International day of families

Every child needs a family…#internationaldayoffamilies#childrenwithoutparentalcare #family #children#india

World Population day

1/5th of the worlds #children yet not counted…

At 430 million children constitute 40% of India’s#population yet they have never had a fair attention in India’s budget. Despite manifold increase in the annual budget, allocation for children has remained abysmally low. #worldpopulationday #budget

Malala Day

#Malala was 12 when she was shot in her head and neck in an assassination attempt by Taliban gunmen. Today, she is an iconic figure and role model for young #girls across the world.

“Honour your daughters, they are human beings like your sons. And educate them, and you will have wonderful daughters, wonderful sisters and you will have a peaceful and prosperous society. Trust them, honour them and educate them.” – Malala’s biggest supporter, her #father#malaladay my father illustrations

World breastfeeding week

#Breastfeeding saves lives.

If an infant is fed only breast milk for the first six months they are #protected against major#childhood diseases. The importance of breastfeeding is often undervalued, resulting in large number of infant illnesses and deaths.

Breastfeeding is a child’s first #immunization, making a breastfed #child 14 times more likely to#survive#worldbreastfeedingweek UNICEF India

Children’s Day

Happy Children’s Day!!

World Toilet Day

In India, more than 620 million people defecate in the open, many of whom are #children.

Almost 28 million #school children across #India do not have access to school toilet facilities. Adolescent girls are vulnerable to dropping out, as many are reluctant to continue school because toilet facilities are not private, not safe or simply not available.

We need to demand that children have access to clean public toilets in our city! Today! #worldtoiletday#poototheloo

Human Rights Day

“A child, like all other human beings, has inalienable rights.” — Lucretia Mott

Child rights are human rights. They protect the child as a human being and also take into account the developmental, social, economic and political needs of children. #humanrightsday

Section 377

We welcome the SC decision to hear the petition to reverse the court’s judgment on #section377#nogoingback #humanrights #childrights

Budget

This year’s budget saw little reason for children to rejoice. Despite a slight increase in the share of children in the union budget from 3.26% to 3.32%, it comes after a drastic decrease of almost 30% last year, reflecting the falling share of children in the budget over the years.

The continuous cuts in the budgets under education, health and protection for children come with a serious warning. Cutting children from the budget is certain to cost us later, highlighting the need to prioritize investing in children’s programs.#unionbudget2016 #budget2016 #childrensbudget

A big thank you to our friends at HAQ: Centre for Child Rights for starting the conversation every year!
