CAMPAIGNS: Training held to launch UNICEF’s Meena project
THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: UNICEF's unique animated communication initiative 'Meena' to protect the girl child in Kerala began with the training of resource persons here on Sunday. It will be followed by a state-level children's parliament or Balapanchayat to identify atrocities against children, violation of their rights and to evolve a protective mechanism.
As many as 33 resource persons from across the state participated in the training session. "The training focused on the communication aspect, listening skills, counseling with booklets on Meena and on the mode of introducing it among kids at the district-level," said A J Ranjit, state consultant for Balasabha.
