When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.– Malala Yousafzai

There are no qualms about the fact that children are the buds of a countrys future and it is the blooming of these buds that ultimately decides any states fortune. Taking the same thought forward, CRY (Child Rights and You), an esteemed non-profit organisation in India, that aims to restore children’s rights, has initiated a Child Rights Leader Program across Delhi University this year.

Child Rights Leader program is a unique youth intervention strategy where only oneChild Rights Leader has been handpicked from every college. The chosen leader will not only lead a movement for child rights in his/her campus but will also be involved in bringing awareness among young college students on issues of Child Rights with a special focus on Child Labour.

Out of a total of approximately 100 application that were received in the north region itself, a total of 8 students were shortlisted on the basis of their application forms and interviews as Child Rights Leaders for their colleges.

Final Shortlisted Students for the program are:

  1. Nupur Bhardwaj Miranda College, University of Delhi.
  2. Rijuta Pandey Hindu College, University of Delhi.
  3. Yeshi Lhamu Bhutia Daulat Ram College , University of Delhi.
  4. Vedant sachdeva Govi Kirori Mal College , University of Delhi
  5. Saniya Singh Jesus and Mary College , University of Delhi.
  6. Tanya Agrawal Indraprastha College for Women , University of Delhi.
  7. Archita Lahiri Delhi College of Arts and Commerce , University of Delhi.
  8. Archit Singhal Ramjas College, University of Delhi.

The selected Child Rights Leaders were inducted on 11 September 2015 where they were not only briefed about the history of CRY and its vision, but were also given a presentation on Child Labor, the issue that they will be working on in their campaign. The final CRLs are  all set to lead a movement against Child Labour in their campuses with zeal and enthusiasm for a change.
