SHINE believe that Every child has a right to DREAM
SHINE has compiled some statistics on the situation of children in India. This is based on our experience of working on a range of children's issues across India. The statistics are grim. What is worse is that very little is known of what it means to be part of such horrific numbers. The task before us is huge and we at SHINE believe that for real change to happen, every member of our society should take responsibility to change the lives of these children permanently.
SHINE CONDUCTED NEW PROGRAMS FOR CHILDREN
A HAPPY,HEALTHY and creative child whose rights are protected and honoured in a society that is built on respect for dignity, justice and equity for all. To enable people to take responsibility for the situation of the deprived Indian child and so motivate them to seek resolution through individual and collective action there by enabling children to realise their full potential To make people Discover their potential for action and change To enable peoples' collectives and movements encompassing diverse segments, to pledge their particular strengths, working in partnership to secure, protect and honour the rights of India's children According to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Children - that India ratified in 1992 - all children are born with fundamental rights.
• Right to Survival - to life, health, nutrition, name, nationality • Right to Development - to education, care, leisure, recreation, cultural activities • Right to Protection - from exploitation, abuse, neglect • Right to Participation - to expression, information, thought, religion And a right to achieve these dreams. Even though India's children account for more than one-third of its population, their interests have never been given priority. And their rights have been violated every single day.
