Programme for Children at Risk                                                                            

 

 

“The ultimate criterion for gauging the integrity of society . . . is the way it treats children, particularly the poorest and most vulnerable ones.” (UNICEF)

 

Social Security, Personal Surety and undisturbed social living are some of the significant aspects that contribute to the sustainable development of the children. The unrelenting economic and social fluctuations have taken direct toll on the growth and development of the children. It should be agreed that the children are vulnerable and become victims in life situations in terms of security, human rights and social living. The collective social and economic circumstances threaten the normal life and future of the children in many ways.

 

In India, varied gradations in the social and economic palettes are explicated through poverty, malnutrition, sanitation problems and cluttered shelters. Global developmental and relief agencies estimate about 11 million children live in the Indian streets. Also more than 2 million Indians are living with HIV/AIDS. Scanning the statistics and ramifications in detail will reveal the unenviable conditions in the lives of millions of the children. The council through various programmes addresses this contextual challenges the childhood and such children whose future is at risk if not intervened appropriately.
