26-JUL-2019: Awareness campaign for Girls held at AMU School
Aligarh, July 26: An 'Awareness Campaign for Girls' was conducted at the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) ABK High School-Girls in which the District Child Protection Unit and District Police Department made the students aware of the acts of violence and neglect specifically targeting the girl child.
Dr Saba Hasan (Vice Principal, AMU ABK High School-Girls) said that although legal protection has been in place for decades for the girl child, thousands of acts of harassment take place around the world.
On the occasion, Dr Saba also gifted a bicycle to class VII student, Kulsum Fatima.
Kawach officials, who helped organising the campaign explained students about various types of abuses and shared with them the helpline numbers.
They urged children facing abuse, neglect and other difficult experiences to not keep themselves in isolation, but instead inform their families about the maltreatment they have faced.
Mr Akhilesh, Mrs Renu Dhuria, Mrs Sonam and Mrs Manju Rani represented the District Police Department and District Child Protection Unit.
Dr Farhat Parveen proposed the vote of thanks.
