November 14 marks the birthday of India's first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, which is celebrated as Children's Day. This year, we observed children's rights, care, and education through a program with the beneficiaries of our slum community centers and Rehabilitation Center alongside local dignitaries.
Snehalaya's Childline and Rehabilitation Center organized our Children's Day activities. Childline, Marathi Press Council Mumbai Nashik Divisional Secretary, and
Child Welfare Committee & Snehalaya celebrated Children's Day with enthusiasm from the deprived section & welcomed the children with roses.
Students of Childline and Balbhavan released balloons and pigeons in the sky announcing Bharat Mata Ki Jai ..., Desh Ki Takat Hum Sab Bachche ..., Jodo Jodo Bharat Jodo ...
Children's day also launches our annual Childline Dosti week, a series of activities to further promote our 24/7 emergency helpline for at-risk children and the supportive services we offer. This week, Childline Se Dosti was started by raising awareness of child marriage freedom in Ahmednagar district.
Meanwhile, our Rehabilitation Center children spent time at their center near our farm, watching child rights & childhood movies & enjoying lunch together.
Also, Ahmednagar district court has organized a children's day program for our Malala Balbhavan children.
Initially, a wreath was laid at the statue of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru by the guests. In his introduction, Hanif Shaikh said that the economic situation has deteriorated due to the crisis in Corona. In such a situation, child marriage is on the rise. This week will be implemented to make our Ahmednagar child marriage-free district through public awareness. There will also be a need for help and support for the education of disadvantaged children. He appealed to save the girl child, protect the child's rights, and cooperate in educating the deprived children.
