I would like to add an additional concern. While nutrition, education, safety are certainly important issues, one that rarely gets serious attention is the issue of emotional neglect/abuse. Because the scars are invisible this form of suffering largely goes unaddressed. I would like to see people concerned about children being put in long hours of daycare -- sometimes over 50 hours a week. I would like to see people as concerned about children's emotional needs and mental health as they are with their educational and physical needs.
Sasha, you're right - emotional abuse is a very serious and often invisible issue. Have you looked at causes.com/discover for related campaigns? If you can't find a campaign raising awareness about emotional abuse, you can also start one: causes.com/causes/new!
Thank you Emily -- I will look.
Children made to beg on roads, pick garbage on railway tracks, living on roads in the poorest of conditions.
give a chance to all the children BALANCE NO DIFFERENCE in money , cast....and in sex.
discrimination against girl child and violence like female feticide is one of the most critical issues for India.
every kids should taught the human rights.
Now a days another problem is that, children are not getting nutritious food which will cause malnutrition. Increase in addition of food additives and lowering the quality of food.
I agree with you. Malnutrition not only decreases health, but then the children can't focus as well in school! There are a number of campaigns about improving school food programs, and you can find them at causes.com/discover.
Discrimination against girl child and female feticide is one of the most critical problems of child rights in India.
This is definitely a huge issue. If you haven't seen it already, take a look at causes.com/itsagirl -- they're running a huge campaign against gendercide!
asylum seeker and refugee children, their exposure to trauma and torture, their lack of stability and safety, their constant fear.
You're right - refugee children undergo huge trauma... What do you think that countries that offer asylum can do to help those children?
i, dislike it too much when i hear a person saying there is no God, especially a child, due to what he or she might have gone through
i just hate child abuse and the person related to this if i have a power then i should punish them and strictly band this types of work
