Walkathon on Anti Child Labor Day at Gulbarga Back
The World Day against Child Labor was marked by a walkathon at Wadi, Gulbarga, on 12 June 2014 in collaboration with Don Bosco PYaR and CHILDLINE Gulbarga. Dr. Lingaraj Konin (Principal, Seth Shankarlal Lahoti Law College) flagged off the walkathon which concluded with the public function at St. Anne’s Church Campus, Wadi. Speaking on the occasion Dr. Lingaraj Konin lamented the fact that childhood is lost to thousands of children due to child labor. The system and the law are often mute spectators in front of power lobbies and it is time that the civil society makes more visible efforts to ensure that every child gets free and compulsory education. Manohar Bhayya (ASI, Wadi) assured all cooperation from the Police Department for the elimination of child labor.

Fr. Faustin OCD (St. Anne’s Church, Wadi), Basavaraj Tengli (Coordinator, CHILDLINE Nodal Centre), Sundar Raj (Coordinator, Margadarshi Society), Fr. Prasad SDB (Don Bosco PYaR), staff members and over 150 children from various schools participated in the programme.
