Jharkhand Governor participated in a programme to eradicate Child Trafficking

Ranchi: Jharkhand Governor CP Radhakrishnan take part in a programme to eradicate Child Labour and Child Trafficking organised by Bal Kalyan Sangh and Bachapan Bachao Andolan in Ranchi on Wednesday. He released a book on ‘Sapno Ki Uddan’, State Level Workshop on Plan of Action to Eliminate Child Trafficking and Unsafe Migration from Jharkhand organized at Radisson Blu, Ranchi.

Governor C.P. Radhakrishnan said that children are the future of the nation and under the circumstances, their exploitation, child trafficking and unsafe migration should be stopped. He is happy that some civil societies and organizations are working in this direction.

The work of ‘Child Welfare Association’, ‘The Children of India Foundation’ and ‘The Asia Foundation’ is commendable. Governor said that the research done jointly by Dr. Ram Dayal Singh Munda Tribal Research Institute and Child Welfare Association has revealed that people of 15 to 18 years of age are mostly victims of trafficking. There are many reasons for this. Mainly due to lack of education, economic condition and lack of mental maturity.

Everyone will have to make collective efforts to overcome this. Teachers in schools will have to make children aware and also continuously encourage them for further studies. Through the Eklavya Vidyalaya, opened in large numbers by the Honorable Prime Minister, children are becoming educated and aware and are being saved from becoming victims of trafficking.

Kasturba Gandhi Girls School is also playing its role in this direction. To prevent human trafficking, the head and other Panchayat representatives also have to be alert that no anti-social element can smuggle people by luring and misleading them. He honored the representatives doing good work in the organization and flagged off the Vikas Bharat Sankalp Yatra Rath.
