District Child Welfare Committee visits five child care centers to ensure basic infrastructure in the Centers : Vimukti Pothnal

Protection of Rights of Children under 18 years is the responsibility of the Child Welfare members. Though fundamental rights guaranteed by the Constitution of India are common for adults and children, there are some rights specifically defined for children. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the child to which India is a signatory also has specific articles on rights of child. There are also special laws for children in India. All children irrespective of caste, colour, and creed are entitled to the full enjoyment of their rights. Some children however need special attention like those marginalized due to economic or social exclusions or those subjected to physical, mental or sexual abuse and in need of care and protection, victims of natural or manmade disasters, children in conflict with law etc.

In order to inspect infrastructure with regard to ensuring safety and security of children and implementation of the Right of children to free and compulsory Education Act (RTE) 2009 CWC members made an surprise visit to five Child care centers in Raichur as well as in Devedura taluka. CWC Chairperson accompanied by the members during the visit. During its inspection at five child care centers, the team appreciated the CCCs management and lauded it for keeping the CCC's premises clean.
