At CRY, they believe in empowering children with the right tools. CRY believes that children who are made aware of their rights are a powerhouse of knowledge. They stand up for themselves and for those around them. They become changemakers and young activists.
CRY has seen multiple examples of this when children as young as 9 years have raised alarm and successfully stopped child marriages in their community. Where adults in the community have failed to stand up to age-old regressive cultural practices, children have boldly raised their voices.
What is “Know your Law” Initiative
Children should be made aware of their rights. Children are smart, they understand their rights and responsibilities when made to understand in a child-friendly manner.
CRY wants to invite Law students to use their expertise and simplify a part/whole of any of the following 4 laws/guidelines.
Pick any of the above 4 topics and make either a video, audio, quiz, or posters explaining the content in a vernacular language. Content in English is welcome, but we would urge you to make your submissions in vernacular languages (along with supporting English base text/ content so that it can be cross-checked).
The content should be:
- In simple language: explaining terms used in the law/ policy wherever applicable.
- Contain crucial information
- Be Age appropriate
