Earlier this year there was a training program conducted for the parliament children and the main topic was Children's Rights.
There has been a state level children's parliament gathering at Chennai and two children from each local parliament were chosen to attend.
They have taken decisions from the knowledge and information they received at the training. They decided to take action by calling the emergency 108 number if they found out about issues relating to children affected by child marriage, sexual abuse, and child labour.
In Vishuvanathapuram, there is no bus service and children go to school by bicycle. A girl of 14 was raped by a group of boys whilst on her way to school. This terrible situation shocked the people. Parents are now afraid to send the girls to school. Students have again handed in a petition to the village head requesting Government buses be brought to the town for school use.
