MA Students of SoHSS and Faculty Ms. Sakshi Kaul visited the session that was conducted by the National Action and Coordination Group (NACG), an NGO forum which brings together NGOs networks, coalitions, media, children’s forums, academia and other civil society bodies to promote interaction, networking, joint advocacy, sharing of good practices and experiences. The main idea of the session was to inform and help join in for this initiative and build the NACG (National Action and Coordination Group) as an important part of action and awareness to end violence against children in India.
The seminar was chaired by Col. Kr. Pratap Singh and Ms. Razia Ismail – Secretariat, New Delhi for NACG. Ms. Razia shared how imperative it has become for us to focus the cause of children and do some actionable things around it.
The main themes that NACG is concerned and is working around are:
They are making a forum that aims at collaborating and working to ensure these social vices against children are eradicated. The aim is to have a society that is safe and comforting for any and every child. The Session was open session were children also got to express and question the issues and concern, enabling the working authorities to get their perspective as well.
NACG is extending membership to an organizational and individual. This is the stepping stone for working towards the cause from starting to bring awareness and making everyone responsible in some way to work for the cause.
We have taken a membership as GDGU organization based for Rs. 500/ organization. There will be work input that can be done and extended for the same cause. There was individual membership that was taken by the faculty and one student.
The Action Plan: The way ahead.
