Child Protection

Introduction:

The present socio-economic situation cannot give security to save lives of the poor families and their children. Maximum parents of this area are unable to meet up the minimum need of their children. As a result of this, there is the problem of child labor. The KJKS feels that the society cannot be stable unless each and every people of the society gets their rights and have the knowledge to distinguish between the good and evil. So KJKS intervened to combat against this problem.

  • The girl child is neglected and is seemed burden to their parents.

  • The parents have no knowledge and awareness about the proper life of the children.
