Subject: The 2013 Click Rights Campaign
Leading Child Rights NGO CRY – Child Rights and You in association with HCLT foundation has launched its CLICK RIGHTS CAMPAIGN, a national citizen photojournalism campaign aimed at pictorially highlighting the barriers to education still faced by 8,150,618 children in India. With the advent of the national general elections early next year, CRY seeks to motivate citizens – specially first-time voters – to demand accountability from duty bearers on the promises made to children. CRY will share the pictures collected as evidence in its advocacy efforts at the local and national level.The month-long online campaign is designed to involve citizens including eminent photographers to use photography as a medium to advocate for child rights. Select pictures depicting the reasons that keep children away from school will be showcased at exhibitions in five cities – Delhi , Kolkata, Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai. CRY invites citizens from all walks of life to click photographs of children who are not in school - whether in their neighborhood, around their work places or colleges and in and around the city at large. Photographs can be uploaded on www.cry.org/focusonthechildWatch the 1 minute campaign AV at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=tKHIeohsYY0Spread the word on FB at https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151479958611949&set=a.454612101948.245912.33497111948&type=1&theaterHere's wishing everyone a happy click for the cause! Source : Rajya Sabha Unstarred Question No. 2962, dated on 20.08.201The CRY Click Rights campaign of 2013 aims to ask India’s citizens to play a participatory role in issues of national importance. In 2012, CRY’s Click Rights campaign centred around the girl child – the various reasons that impede her progress. In 2013, we turn our focus to education – more specifically, to the 8,150,618 children that are not in school across the country.
