Child Safety Programme 2017

Child Safety

The IIS students of Grades 1 & 2 attended the MASOOM Programme on 16th August 2017 – a programme on Child Safety and POCSO (Protection of children from Sexual Offences) was conducted by Baroda Citizens Council, Young Indians, CHILDLINE (A Project Of Baroda Citizens Council) . Almost 175 children were made aware about Good Touch & Bad Touch, how to reach for help, who to approach for help, about sharing their feelings and emotions with trusted adults, how to call 1098 for help if there is a phone, writing their feelings and dropping it into the POCSO box in school (which will be opened and checked by the Young India members regularly). The presentation was conducted with games, quizzes, PPT presentation, stories – which was very interesting for the small children on a topic that most parents find difficult to address.
