It is indeed a milestone that United Nation’s Convention on Rights of the Children (UNCRC) has completed its 25 years.

Bal Adhikar Yatra was an opportunity to analyze the actual situation of children all over in Gujarat and study their issues. This study on the issues of children may help to give proper direction by preparing an action plan in future.

Overall it was an occasion to meet children and listen their voices as their voices are the reflection of their situations. Shaishav being a Convener of CRC-G feels privileged to be an initiator of this Yatra and celebrating this silver jubilee year.

We are thankful to all the local organizations who supported the Bal Adhikar Yatra in their respective districts. The Yatra would not have received such great success without their efforts.
