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
Should children be left out, just because they don’t vote?
I voted for the future of my child. Did you?
A little girl living in an orphanage had never seen her mother, so she drew on the ground and fell asleep next to her.

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
“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.

#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.

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.

I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection – Sigmund Freud#happyfathersday

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
Happy Makar Sankranti! #kiteflyingday
Inspired by: Sushant Divgikar
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!
