Enchancing the Capacities of Bal Sansad & Meena Manch On Improving the Quality Education in schools
Today, 1.2 billion adolescents stand at the crossroads between childhood and the adult world. Around 243 million of them live in India but they remain invisible group. Society usually fails to respect their human rights, leaving them powerless to act in a way that improves their lives at home, school or work. This lack of empowerment is manifestedin five key aspects of their lives – sexual health, early marriage and early pregnancy, domestic violence, education, productivity and income.
Formation of child cabinets in schools is like an opportunity for children to speak out on issues which impact or matter to them. It is like voicing concern of children as they see it. This does not only empower children, but also increse their understanding on their own rights and shaping their personality.
Child cabinet ministers such as health minister, education minister, environment minister, discipline minister and others learn the decision making process and find solutions tor resolve problems.
