Awareness for the public in the
vicinity of the Market and in the surroundings of Railway station
was conducted by CHILDLINE Raichur team on October 20th, 2019.
Public were explained about the issues of children such as child
labour, school drop outs, begging children, child abuse, missing
children and run away children. Hand-outs with information on
CHILDLINE (1098) and child related issues were distributed to the
public. A group of students from government high School received the
awareness with great enthusiasm. A positive response was given by
the public who assured that they would call the child helpline if
any children were at risk. After counseling the parent and the
children on child labour, the mother was advised to refrain from
using the children to earn a living to meet the school expenses.
