Ask yourself what is in the long-term best interests of children around you – your own, your neighbor’s, the child who works at the tea stall nearby, your domestic help’s/ driver’s children. Think of opportunities you can give all of these children to play, learn and do creative things together!
Take a walk down to the municipal/Govt. school or health center in your neighborhood and see what you can do to change the situation. Maybe you and a few of your friends from the neighborhood could get together and make it a more child-friendly environment.
Spend Quality Time With Your Children/Siblings
Sit with your children or siblings and initiate a discussion or work on a project about the situation of children in your environment – in school, in your neighborhood, on the streets, at traffic signals etc.
Take A Stand Against Child Right Violations
Stop employing children for domestic help, as it’s neither morally nor legally right.
Try to make a strict rejection of goods & services that employ children. Encourage those suppliers and agencies that employ and pay adults enough to send their children to school and fulfill their children’s basic rights.
Discuss with your children how you can contribute to the cause of child rights – by volunteering, holding exhibitions to create awareness or fund-raising drives for DEHAT.
Organize an in-house campaign to involve your colleagues or management to contribute time, money or skills for DEHAT’s effort.
