Children are protected from Violence
In Bangladesh perspective violence against children may be termed as violation of their right to physical integrity and dignity including breach of their fundamental rights as citizens, guaranteed by the constitution of the Country and fostered in the UNCRC, National Child Policy and Child Act. In the Chattogram City Corporation area the situation regarding violence against children are worse, because of migrant labour force from different parts of the country have flocked together in the city and majority of whom live in with their families along with their children. These children are usually victims of VAC, SGBV, Child Marriage, and PHP in homes, community and educational institutions. To establish the government declaration on banning PHP in schools settings and in order to aware and sensitize the teachers, SMC members, parents, caregivers, elected representative, and opinion leaders regarding negative results of VAC, SGBV, Child Marriage, and PHP and to impart and transfer appropriate information, education and knowledge to them regarding their rights in Chattogram, MAMATA is implementing “Children are Protected from Violence” project under the financial and technical assistance of Save the Children International in Bangladesh (SCIB) since 2013.
