New Delhi: Union Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment Virender Kumar inaugurated 'Meri Awaz Suno', an event organized by Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi’s Children’s Foundation (KSCF) and supported by boAt, India's leading audio and wearables brand.
The minister released a new video album “Uski Kya Galti Thi”, created by 17-year-old Tilak and 15-year-old Ashma from Sanjay Camp in Chanakyapuri. It spotlights the rising sexual violence against children and women.
Virender Kumar extolled the lifelong dedication of Kailash Satyarthi for children and said, “Everyone lives for oneself but very few live with humanity as their objective. The only objective is to make children’s life happy without being bothered about one’s own health and rest”.
At the event, children staged performances to spread the message on child rights, highlighting the positive changes that KSCF has brought in their communities in the past 4 years through its activities, which ensured and encouraged the active participation of children in the development programmes.
KSCF is currently working in 8 slums in Delhi and has succeeded in inculcating leadership qualities in children.
