Success of Civilized nation is measured by degree of Woman Empowerment and Enlightenment. How can we empower a Woman if she faces Child abuse at tender age ?
A Noble line by Noble Nelson Mandela
“There Can be No Keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way it treats its Children .”
But recent incidents with Girl Child in a School that is supposed to be most safe place are real concern, which are not only disturbing but alarming that Our Girl Child is not safe . Not to mention Gild Child victim faces life long consequences which is not only emotional scars or Physical Scars but impact on future well-being. This will result in lower educational attainment which defiantly impacts in future of Children and family. Sometimes consequences are irreversible that as an adult they will commit serious offence or crime that can ruin entire life of Child and others.
So preventing Violence and Abuse against girls at School is first step we as responsible citizen should take, well this is not easy as said but need strict on ground preventive steps. Everyone right from Children, Parents, maids and School Authorities should be made aware about this and their responsibility.
Mrs India Finalist 2017 and Mrs India 2017 South Runner -up Shalini Chandrasekhar decided to address this issue and working on it. Shalini says as Children’s spent more time in School than anywhere it’s very important that schools are Safe for our Children’s and she started visiting schools personally bring awareness about Safety.
Shalini taught them to understand the difference between good touch and bad touch. During her work what Shalini notices is Most of times School’s do not consider its their accountability to keep School environment safe . Many schools avoid their legal and ethical responsibilities of Child safety which is very serious issue as each and every person in education system should be responsible and accountable to give Child a Secure and safe place .
Shalini noticed that mostly schools for Children’s from lower income families never address this issue and most of times goes unnoticed so Mrs India Finalist 2017 Shalini Chandrasekhar made point that she Educates Woman ,specially mothers of Girl Child about how to keep Girl Child Safe and preventive steps to ensure it .
