Bhopal: Habibganj railway station was illuminated with blue lights on the theme ‘Go Blue‘ to raise awareness towards children’s rights. The programme has been organised the UNICEF. The special thing was that the station not only bathed in blue light but by putting laser beams from the projector, messages related to issues like child marriage, vaccination, nutrition, anemia, violence towards children, kangaroo care, etc were displayed.
UNICEF is running a Go Blue campaign to commemorate 30 years of the Convention on the Rights of the Child this year. Under this, the buildings are given blue color to show their dedication to child rights. All 54 properties of MP Tourism bathed in blue light on the occasion.
Thirty years ago, world leaders made a historic commitment to the world’s children by adopting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child – an international agreement on childhood. It’s become the most widely ratified human rights treaty in history and has helped transform children’s lives around the world.
But still not every child gets to enjoy a full childhood. Still, too many childhoods are cut short, according to the UNICEF. The UNICEF says it is up to our generation to demand that leaders from government, business and communities fulfil their commitments and take action for child rights now, once and for all.
