FE Report
10/8/2005
 

          The government has taken up a five-year national plan of action from 2005 to 2010 for the protection of child rights and development of children.
This was stated by Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Moudud Ahmed while he was addressing as the chief guest at a discussion meeting organised by Convention on Child Rights (CRC) Week Celebration Committee, a group of development organisations working with the partnership of Plan Bangladesh in observance of international child rights week.
The minister said special provisions have been incorporated in the action plan to protect the rights of working children, now engaged in about 400 risky and harmful occupation.
He said the existing national child policy would be revised and necessary amendments and additions will also be undertaken to facilitate implementation of national plan of action.
More than 100 disadvantaged children who have been given the opportunity to raise their voice participated in the function held at the Institutions of Engineers, Bangladesh (IEB) recently.
Children represented the child-centred organisations like Shishu Dal, CDF, Radda, Surabhi, UCEF, DSK and Fulki. Expressing their hopes and aspirations, the children stressed the need for providing allout support to establish their rights of survival, development, protection, participation and mobilisation.
Chaired by Thomas Espey, country director of Plan Bangladesh, the function was also addressed by Zinat Afroj, Social Development Adviser of Plan Bangladesh.
The children also performed in a cultural programme followed by discussion session.
