India of Dreams, in association with LegalDesire.com, is proud to announce the launch of the 1st National Essay Writing Competition, 2013. The Competition aims at bringing out some innovative ideas of the youth for the protection of child rights in India.
INDIA OF DREAMS
India of Dreams was started as a hope to fight against Social Causes with the help of press media, administration & volunteers support. It strives to ensure the protection of Human Rights in the society and fights against various issues to make India of ‘Dreams’ into reality. The organisation also provides free education to orphans and poor children for whom the term ‘school’ signifies a far-fetched dream.
CHILD RIGHTS IN INDIA
“ Children are little people who need BIG rights. ”
– Dr. Klaus Kenkel, Germany
Rights are about empowering people, about giving power to the vulnerable and marginalized people to fight for justice. Until recently, little thought had been given to rights of children in India and it was only towards the end of the last century that children began to be looked on as persons in their own right, with rights of their own. And now, together as a nation, it is our duty to further provide an impetus to this movement. Let us be loud, let us be clear.
