Child Rights Awareness Drive In Bhubaneswar Slums
Bhubaneswar: The Odisha State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (OSCPCR) will organise a two-day ‘Sishu Sampark Yatra’ in city slums to create awareness on child rights.
The drive will be held at Sikhar Chandi and Niladri Vihar slums on Friday and at Adibasigaon near Salia Sahi and Patharabandha slum on Monday.
OSCPCR will organise the programme in association with ActionAid, Centre for Sustainable Use of Natural and Social Resources (CSNR) and Centre for Child and Women Development (CCWD).
“During the event, volunteers will interact with the children and their parents to know their grievances,” said an OSCPCR official.
The awareness drive comes even as the number of missing children in the Odisha capital remains a cause for concern.
Notably, the Commissionerate Police is yet to trace 201 of 261 children, who went missing from Bhubaneswar in 2020.
