Children were seen holding placards about pressing issues that concern them such as – child labor, child marriage and accessing the Right to Education (RTE). They took to the streets of TN Pura in an attempt to create awareness about the ill-effects involving child laborers and the consequences of giving under-aged kids away for child marriages. All the stake holders strongly supported the rally. Subsequently, a public meeting was organized in the compound of Government High School where the BEO spoke about the ‘Anti Child-Labor Day’. He mentioned how western countries like Japan and Israel, even though being smaller countries than India have managed to progress so well within such a short span of time. The rally and the public gathering strongly conveyed the message against child labour and the importance of sending children to schools than to factory.
