                  Workshop on Child Rights

                  A workshop on child rights was conducted in Arwachin International School on January 14, 2019. The resource person of the workshop was Ms. Mini Srivastava, who is recently pursuing PhD. in law and is working as an assistant professor at Amity University.

                  In the workshop she discussed about POCSO Act, 2012 (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences). She told the teachers that POCSO was established under UNCRC 1989. According to UNCRC each child has four fundamental rights:

                  ·        Right to Survival

                  ·        Right to Development

                  ·        Right to Protection

                  ·        Right to Participation

                  According to her a child is the most vulnerable element of the society and is exposed to many kind of offences, including sexual offences. She bifurcated sexual offences into two categories:

                  ·        Penetrative sexual offences

                  ·        Non- penetrative sexual offences

                  According to Indian Penal law, a ‘penetrative sexual offence’ is considered as a more heinous crime as compared to non- penetrative sexual offences and hence the punishment is also stricter in case of a penetrative sexual offence.

                  At last, she discussed that how a school teacher can ensure child safety at her personal level. A teacher needs to be always vigilant to ensure child safety.

                  The workshop served its purpose well and enlightened the teachers with the importance of child rights.
