Children's Right Centre

Children’s Rights Centre (CRC)-A unit of GOODWILL

Goodwill Social Work Centre has set up a Children’s Rights Centre (CRC) with a prime objective of proclaiming, protecting and defending Children’s rights as affirmed in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989). Like in many other countries, the rights of children are still generally low on the agendas in India. It is evident from a study Report (Maheshwar Madan Lal, 1994) that the percentage of children in India who asserted their rights was negligible and a high majority of children were not even aware of their fundamental rights of children due to lack of education. Similarly, amongst adults, 10 percent were aware of the rights of the child while 15 percent gave this subject a thought. Only 7 percent were engaged in facilitating these rights to them. In view of this, the centre has established a Children’s Rights Centre which provides a variety of services to the beneficiaries include School children’s forums, Teachers’ and parents’ associations, farmers’ associations, Co-operatives, women’s groups, self help groups (men and women), rural youth clubs/Associations, Residents’ welfare associations, grassroots level NGOs, political groups and NSS volunteers and Youth groups in schools.

  • To provide a conceptual understanding and awareness of the United Nations Convention on the Rights the Child (I989) for civic action groups.
