For child-friendly railway stations
In a move to raise awareness about children in need of care and protection amongst all stakeholders and help make railway stations child-friendly, Arunodhaya Centre for Street and Working Children kickstarted its ‘Childline se dosti week’ at the Egmore railway station on Tuesday. The centre also inaugurated its revamped Childline kiosk at the station.
Georgy George, Superintendent, Government Railway Police (GRP), presided over the event and released bookmarks and boards containing the helpline number 1098 and points about identifying and reporting children in need of protection. The inauguration was followed by a dance performance and a play. “We hope more children are helped through this” said Virgil D’Sami, executive director of Arunodhaya.
