Say No To Child Labour !


“Only the worst thief can steal someone’s   childhood”.  They call it best phase of life. They call it childhood for the rest it is just chide hood. The pain behind the statement can be felt by every child found working in homes,hotels,factories and all possible places where they can be exploited.

A school boy once complained “If child labour is a crime then why does our teacher gives us homework?”. What about those who will never get a chance to see the face of a school in their entire lifetime, who are sold into the hands of their masters even before they understand the ways of the world. These young soldiers are sent to war even without proper equipment.

Sitting in our well-furnished houses we often complain that child labour exists, no strict laws are implemented by government to curb this crime and at the next moment we walk into a local restaurant where a small boy comes to clean our table. What do we do then? Crib about government not implementing ban and we continue eating. Imagine what can happen if we refuse to eat at such places. Change should start from us. 

It is however important to realize that child labour cannot be fully abolished in page of India where one child is the sole breadwinner of his page of family. Although it is most undesirable where a child has to work rather than go to school, denying option of working to him would be even more disastrous and might force the child into illegal activities for survival. A child activist correctly remarked “Teach him to chop an onion before he learns to chop a head.” Next time when you happen to find any child labour case prevailing in your area try to find out the reason. Help them get back the most beautiful phase of their life – childhood.

World Toilet Day ! 19th November 2019

World Toilet Day, celebrated on 19th November every year, is about inspiring action to tackle the global sanitation crisis and help achieve Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6, which promises sanitation for all by 2030.
Theme of World Toilet Day -2019 is Leaving no one behind.

A toilet is not just a toilet. It’s a life-saver, dignity-protector and opportunity-maker.
Whoever you are, wherever you are, sanitation is your human right. And yet, today, 4.2 billion people live without safely managed sanitation.
How can anyone lift themselves out of poverty without sanitation? We must expand access to safe toilets and leave no one behind.

Key Facts !
4.2 billion people live without safely managed sanitation – more than half the global population.
673 million people still practise open defecation worldwide.
Globally, at least 2 billion people use a drinking water source contaminated with faeces.
Inadequate sanitation is estimated to cause 432,000 diarrhoeal deaths every year and is a major factor in diseases such as intestinal worms and trachoma.
Children under the age of five living in countries affected by protracted conflict are, on average, nearly 20 times more likely to die from diarrhoeal diseases caused by a lack of safe water, sanitation and hygiene than by direct violence. (UNICEF )

IMPORTANCE OF VOLUNTEERING




Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.” - Elizabeth Andrew

Volunteering is one of the most effective ways to gain meaningful, hands-on experience in the social work field.Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, “What are you doing for others?” Last month, I started working as an online volunteer for HEEALS.I have realized that it has enormous benefits. Volunteering helps bring a difference as it feels good to help other people and enact changeand give back to the community. Volunteering helps us make friends, learn new skills, advance our career, and even feel happier and healthier.The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others is the beginning of a happier life for ourselves.

Benefits of volunteering:
·         Volunteering connects you to others and helps to gain new insights.
·         Volunteering is good for your mind and body
·         Volunteering can advance your career
·         Volunteering brings a sense of accomplishment to your life

There are wonderfulVolunteering opportunities available at HEEALShttp://heeals.org/volunteer-zone-

Internship:
Experience as an intern is an incredible way to discover India and to work for an NGO. As an intern you will be treated as an employee so it could be the way for you to have a job experience abroad and to practice the skills you’ve learnt in your studies.

Online Volunteering:
As an online volunteer with us, you could do a variety of things in the comfort of your home or office.

Volunteers:
HEEALS is a growing organization which offers volunteers the unique ability & mechanism to have a truly significant role in organizational and program development.
During a volunteer program, you become deeply involved with local community, immersed in a new culture and a different way of life.

Gap Year:
During your Gap year volunteering with HEEALS allows you to do something a bit more constructive with your time. This will hone your skills, help you learn a language, immerse in another culture, build long lasting bonds, and provide vital services to a local community. Your gap year is a chance, where you can utilize your existing skills in excellent practice.



I would like to end this with the words of Mahatma Gandhi - “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

We Are All Equal !




And though she be but little, she is fierce.” – William Shakespeare


It is ironical that we worship many female Goddesses at various festivals however when it comes to women living in our home we don’t really give them the same amount of respect and care that they deserve. In the Indian rural landscape, girls are generally deprived of even the most basic facilities (such as proper nutrition, education, lifestyle etc.) in their family because of the superiority of boy child. In the Indian society, boys are given higher importance than that of girls in terms of healthcare and nutrition. One of the major issues facing India’s girls and women is the high death toll of gender discrimination, both prenatally and postnatally. We kill them before they get to see the light of day or do not care for them after their birth without even realizing how we will get a daughter, sister, wife or mother in future. Has anyone ever pondered as to what will happen if women deny to be pregnant, give birth to a baby or give up all the responsibilities of their motherhood. If not; then why are girls killed, why are they considered to be a curse, why are they regarded as a burden to their parents or society. Why are such eye-opening questions still not answered?

To solve this pressing issue, the Govt. of India has launched several initiatives to save the Girl Child and curb the menace of female infanticide. One such campaign is “BetiBachao, BetiPadhao”(Save the daughter, educate the daughter).It aims to generate awareness and improve the efficiency of welfare services intended for girls in India.It addresses the issue of the declining child sex ratio image.
The objectives of this initiative are:
·         Prevention of gender biased sex selective elimination
·         Ensuring survival & protection of the girl child
·         Ensuring education and participation of the girl child
·         Bridge the sex-ratio gap

To know more about this campaign visit:https://wcd.nic.in/bbbp-schemes


To contribute towards this social cause,time and again HEEALS has come up with various activities to support girl child .
Few of the activities undertaken are:
·         Organised  workshops In Uttar Pradesh Schoolson “Stop Child Marriage”&“Save Girl”&“Educate Girl”.
·         HEEALS spearheaded their campaign “Hand Wash and Menstrual Hygiene” using various innovative and interesting activities to explain the importance of hygiene practices. Till now, we have targeted six schools and 1050 students in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh and Gurgaon, Haryana, India between the age group 10-14 years studying in classes 5th – 9th.
·         Through The Medium of Documentary Film like –“The Curse” we are trying to create Awareness Among the Masses about Girl Child Education , Menstrual Hygiene, Sanitation and Safe Drinking Water .
·         HEEALS organises menstrual hygiene management workshops and ‘Pads for Girls’ project which provides girls with a healthier and safer alternative: the sanitary pad.
· Through spreading education on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene and organizing WASH and MH workshop, HEEALS is working to increase the attendance rates of girls in schools who drop out from school due to their period and improve self-confidence of girls in Indian society.
