About This Initiative
Dear Sir/ Madam,
The year 2015 marks the deadline by which the Millennium Development Goals should be achieved by the world. Two years to the target date and the progress so far leaves a lot to be desired, especially in the case of children and their rights.
In this context, I along with a group of like minded MPs have taken a keen interest in the formation of a Parliamentarians’ Group for Children (PGC). On behalf of the PGC, I would like to invite you to grace the launch of the Group with your presence.
The primary focus of the Group is to bring about policy awareness and changes to ensure that children have the necessary protection and support to be able to exercise their rights. The PGC will be unique in that it will be able to promote the cause of children at the highest law making forum of the country, the
Parliament. Our children, who are the future of this country, deserve no less. UNICEF, which has been working tirelessly for the cause of children in India since 1949, has been invited to provide ongoing technical support to the Group. The formation of the PGC is being supported by Centre for Legislative Research and Advocacy (CLRA) that has expertise and proven experience in running similar initiatives.
I request you again to participate in the event and make this venture a success.
Time: 5:00 PM- 7:00 PM
Date: 23 August 2013
Venue: Constantia Hall, YWCA, Ashoka Road
Looking forward to your participation
Member of Parliament
