Effective implementation of child laws necessary

New Delhi,Immigration/Law/Rights, Tue, 27 Aug 2013 IANS

New Delhi, Aug 27 (IANS) There should be coordination between civil society, people and policy makers if laws on child rights are to be effectively implemented and reach children, experts said Tuesday.

Preet Verma, advisor to chairperson, National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) said: "We have multiple laws enhancing child rights like Child Labour Prohibition and Regulation Act and Right to Education Act. For an effective implementation of these laws, civil society, child rights commission and government should work in coordination."

A group of child rights experts participated in the national workshop on 'Improving Quality of Life of Children', organised by a non-governmental organisation Plan India.

"A change from the community level is needed. We in United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) work mostly at the grassroots level and educate children, particularly adolescent girls about implications of child marriage," said Dora Giusti, child protection specialist, UNICEF India.

She added that in Maharashtra, Unicef's empowerment programme for girls has seen positive changes, as girl children have refused child marriage and spoken to sarpanches (village heads) on the issue.

On the occasion, Plan India that works for child rights published six studies on child marriage, status of girl child in India, magnitude and causes of malnutrition in Jharkhand, status of drinking water and sanitation in villages.
