Jamshedpur: ‘Illumination of scars beyond the pale’, a crusade against child sexual abuse was launched on Wednesday under the initiative of Ayushi Ghosh, a student of Standard X who is this year’s Horlicks Wizkids winner.
Sister Sylvie, the school principal launched the program by lighting the lamp. Ayushi Ghosh thanked the principal and the faculty for their support and guidance.
She addressed the gathering and laid stress on keeping oneself safe by being aware of the things happening around. Her future plans are to educate children and parents and make them aware of this social evil through seminars, workshops, movies, puppet shows, presentations and street plays to create a triangular effect.
“If one person takes the responsibility of spreading awareness to two others very soon each and every Indian child will learn to protect themselves. Carmel Junior College has taken its first step towards making people and students aware about child sexual abuse, a problem that has seen a steep rise in and around Jamshedpur,” said the principal.
The principal said Qurratul Ain had won the second runner up award in ASISC National Declamation held at Hyderabad.
